Sixty of the greatest works from one of the UK's finest collections of drawings.

One of the most ambitious exhibitions of graphic art that the Courtauld has mounted in decades, this show will explore the primacy of drawing in training and practice across more than five hundred years of European art. Some of the drawings on display are fully finished pieces in their own right, while others provide glimpses into the spontaneous, preparatory stages of the creative process.
