28/4 – 25/9/2016

The exhibition of items from our collections maps out changes in the art of drawing, from ancient times almost up to the present.   However, owing to the long-term focus of our collection activity, most of the works will be from the 20th century.

You will familiarize yourselves, in an intimate form and installation, with all the basic trends of the first half of the 20th century: from Symbolism, Expressionism, Cubism and Civilism, to abstract discharges and surrealist journeys into the subconsciousness.  In the second half of the 20th century the drawing medium gradually became a final artistic discipline, equal in stature to painting and sculpture.  In the exhibition it will be represented by lyrical and gestural abstraction, experiments from the 1960s, conceptual tendencies, and post-modernism.  

Looking back at the still debated development of modern art, including drawing, one would arrive at the conclusion that drawing is still alive and irreplaceable, even in the digital era.
