Description: Drawing: The Invention of a Modern Medium
The aim of the present publication is to make visible the multifarious process of drawing’s emergence into modernity. To achieve this aim, the authors have dispensed with the traditionally privileged chronological, stylistic, or oeuvre-oriented formats of display in favor of a model of presentation based in a constellation of interrelated categories. The book is divided into three main sections (Medium, Discourse, and Object) and, within them, into several subsections that address specific aspects of these divisions. Grouped under these headings are drawings produced at different moments in time as well as different types of drawings.

This catalogue accompanied the exhibition "Drawing: The Invention of a Modern Medium," on view at the Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, Massachusetts, from January 21 through May 7, 2017.
