Drawing Together aims to shed light on the creative power of drawing by staging a series of dialogues between historic works in the Courtauld collection and a selection of works by living artists. Looking beyond traditional questions of attribution and function, it will focus on drawing as a creative act, tracing connections across schools and periods, and initiating responses from living artists. It will present a series of unexpected encounters between pairs of drawings, ranging from a small sketch by George Romney to a gestural abstract work by Hans Hartung, taking in drawings by Peter Lely, Stephen Farthing and Guercino, Antoine Watteau and Jenny Saville. Drawing Together accompanies an exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery, London. It is part of the the programme of the Courtauld’s Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery that seeks to enrich our understanding of the history and practice of drawing by examining particular questions and overlooked episodes. It showcases the Gallery’s aim to play an essential role in researching and presenting for public benefit the great variety of the history of art.
