By Heather Lemonedes, Curator of Drawings, The Cleveland Museum of Art
Drawing in Britain during the 18th and 19th centuries reflected obsessions of the age, ranging from the communication of status and erudition to recording visual truth and intensely personal responses to nature. This richly illustrated book highlights more than 50 drawings by British artists of the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian eras-many published here for the first time. It is the first in a series of books exploring the Cleveland Museum of Art’s extraordinary collection of light sensitive treasures.
An exhibition of the same name will be on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art from February 10 through May 26, 2013
