An engaging survey of a renowned collection of drawings that includes work by artists from Guercino and Hendrick Goltzius to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Jaume Plensa

One of America’s foremost art dealers, Richard Gray—along with his wife, the art historian Mary L. Gray—amassed a remarkable collection of drawings, paintings, and sculpture representing 700 years of Western art. Offering an in-depth look at the Gray Collection’s drawings, this volume highlights 36 exceptional works that range from the 15th through the 20th century by artists such as Paolo Veronese, François Boucher, Auguste Rodin, Jackson Pollock, and Tadao Ando. Entries by scholars from a variety of fields provide new perspectives on individual drawings and discuss the ways in which they reflect changes in artistic practice and the evolution of draftsmanship. This handsome publication also features the guest book from the Richard Gray Gallery, a fascinating historical document adorned with drawings and salutations from the likes of Susan Sontag, Ellsworth Kelly, and Tom Wolfe.

Kevin Salatino is Anne Vogt Fuller and Marion Titus Seale Chair and Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago. Suzanne Folds McCullagh is director of the Gray Collection Trust.
