9780714845456: Vitamin D: New Perspectives in Drawing

Drawing has recently experienced a renewal of importance in the art world and has rarely been as widely represented in biennials, art fairs, and exhibitions as it is now. Similar in concept, scope, and structure to Phaidon's successful volume Vitamin P, Vitamin D presents, in A-Z order, the work of 109 artists who have emerged internationally since 1990. All use drawing as a primary medium. Whether representational or abstract, small or large in scale, using only one line or rich in colors and pattern, drawings have a highly descriptive and meticulously detailed quality that is being explored by an increasing number of contemporary artists. Extending beyond images traditionally associated with this medium, Vitamin D illustrates the complexity, variety, and relevance of the practice of drawing today.

Review:

"Big, sexy, gorgeously produced... A great introduction to 109 new worlds made intimate through the innate qualities of drawing." -Royal Academy of Arts magazine "Handsomely produced... The quality of the work is extraordinarily high." -Times Literary Supplement
