Exhibition: Drawing Inspiration

Drawing Inspiration: Renaissance and Baroque Drawings from the Permanent Collection

Drawing Inspiration: Renaissance and Baroque Drawings from the Permanent Collection

May 24 – October 9, 2016

In the early modern period, drawings assumed a new status among works of art—as unimpeded expressions of artistic creativity—despite most of them continuing to serve as tools of artists’ and workshops’ processes. Rather than view art and utility as mutually exclusive, this exhibition examines different types of drawings, the functions they served, the creative processes behind them, and the masterful artistic achievements they embody.

"I still remember the feeling of awe and disbelief when I was alone and walked in the room with those casts." --Ruth Tofle, chair of architecture, winner of the 2013 distinguished faculty award from the MU Alumni Association
