Old Master Drawings from the Collection of Dundee Art Galleries and Museums
To coincide with the exhibition of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, The McManus will showcase Old Master Drawings from the Collection of Dundee Art Galleries and Museums.
Featuring the works of renowned artists including Ludovico Carracci, Carlo Maratta and Jacopo Amigoni, the exhibition explores the reasons for producing drawings and the techniques involved.
Kept in storage for their preservation, these fragile works on paper are rarely displayed. This is their first showing for several years and with new research on many of the drawings, this is indeed an exhibition of discovery.
The exhibition will run from the Saturday 4th August until Sunday 16th September 2012.
