Although drawing and sculpting may appear profoundly different, for artists these two disciplines have often been intertwined. This exhibition presents the role sculpture can play in the art of drawing, as well as the function of drawing in the art of sculpture.



Selected primarily from the Getty Museum’s collection, this exhibition showcases drawings and sculptures from the late 15th through the 20th century. Particularly important was the tradition of drawing after ancient statuary and plaster casts beginning in the Renaissance and continuing through the early 19th century. As western art became more abstract during the 20th century, drawing remained at the center of most sculptors’ practice.
