Italian Drawings from the National Gallery of Canada
October 18, 2003 - January 11, 2004
The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa is home to the largest collection of Italian historial drawings in the country. This exhibition has been arranged chronologically, representing the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, as well as individual regions in Italy such as Florence, Venice, and Rome. This exhibition also recognizes the role that drawing serves not only as a diverse and versatile technique in itself, but also as the basis for all the conventional arts. These works, normally in pen, ink, or chalk, feature a variety of different formats and subjects, religious and secular. The imagery offers something for everyone: figure studies, landscapes, religious imagery, architectural motifs, and scenes from classical mythology.
