Master Drawings from Mantegna to Matisse, The Courtauld Gallery

Detail of Helena Fourment by Peter Paul Rubens

According to the Wall Street Journal this exhibit is “breathtaking in the quality of the work exhibited.  This show of lollipops is set out a bit like a sweetshop -Leonardo and Michelangelo are displayed along with Bruegel the Elder, Rembrandt, Rubens, Ingres, Turner and Cezanne.”

The show contains 60 works which the WSJ suggests you should allow plenty of time to see.  The exhibit moves to the Frick in NYC on September 9th (for my new york readers!)

From the Courtauld: “This exhibition celebrates the art of drawing and offers a unique opportunity to enjoy some of the very greatest works from the Courtauld’s collection.”
