In this unconventional selection of 100 of the drawings, ranging from the fifteenth to the mid-twentieth century, each work is accompanied by an insightful commentary by a distinguished expert. Images and text combine to provide a fascinating chronicle of five centuries of drawing, from Renaissance Italy to modern Canada. A fresh and lively tour of a distinctive international collection, including works by Rembrandt, Turner, Gauguin, Chagall, Picasso and Pollock.
