Marks of a Genius

Over its 100-year history, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts has amassed an extensive collection of works on paper. The selection of drawings, watercolors, gouaches, and pastels dating from the Middle Ages to the present day includes stellar examples by such masters as Guercino, Annibale Carracci, George Romney, François Boucher, Thomas Gainsborough, Edgar Degas, Käthe Kollwitz, Egon Schiele, Emil Nolde, Amedeo Modigliani, Henri Matisse, Alfredo Ramos Martínez, Roy Lichtenstein, and Ed Ruscha.

This eye-opening exhibition illuminates the historical and ongoing role of drawing as a means of study, observation, and problem solving, as an outpouring of the artist’s imagination, and as a method of realizing a finished work of art.

This exhibit is at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts through September 21, 2014.
