In works on paper, there is spontaneity and intimacy, which seem to bring us closer to the artist’s vision and process. These works, painted directly on paper or on a printed plate with broad gestures or precise marks, convey the living presence of the artist's hand.
The exhibition explores the role of drawing and print graphics in the practice of artists, covering various ways, from research to finished compositions, as well as a variety of genres, including portrait painting, landscape, satire and abstraction. Working on paper, the artists captured visible and imaginary worlds, developed poses and compositions, experimented with materials and techniques, and expressed their personal and political beliefs.
Artists presented at the exhibition: Albrecht Dürer, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Francisco Goya, Bert Morisso, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh, Kete Kolwitz and Wassily Kandinsky.
