A celebration of the stunning collection of artworks donated in honor of the creation of The Menil Drawing Institute

Featuring outstanding 20th-century drawings promised or bequeathed to the Menil Collection for the opening of the Menil Drawing Institute, this elegant volume is a testament to the growing significance of drawings as stand-alone artworks over the past century. The drawings come from the private collections of well-known connoisseurs Janie C. Lee, Louisa Stude Sarofim, and David Whitney, and include works by artists such as Bruce Nauman, Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Eva Hesse, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Jackson Pollock. Its chief curator Edouard Kopp profiles the Drawing Institute’s nature and scope, and noted scholars John Elderfield and Richard Shiff discuss historical aspects of drawing, while Terry Winters muses from an artist’s viewpoint.

Edouard Kopp is John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Chief Curator at the Menil Drawing Institute. John Elderfield is chief curator emeritus of painting and sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Richard Shiff is the Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art at the University of Texas at Austin. Terry Winters is an artist who works across a wide variety of media.
