Hull University Exhibition, LINES OF THOUGHT.

Image result for hull university lines of thought


From Dürer to Degas, Michelangelo to Matisse, Rembrandt to Riley - Lines of thought uncovers the genius behind the drawings of some of art's most prominent masters.
The greatest gathering of artistic talent ever seen in Hull - in one exhibition. From Dürer to Degas, Michelangelo to Matisse, Rembrandt to Riley, this exhibition examines the process and practice of drawing, illustrated by a selection of work created over 500 years. Lines of thought uncovers the genius behind the drawings of some of art's most prominent masters giving us fresh insight into the creative impulse of some of the world's greatest artists.


Just back from visiting the exhibition at Hull University. Wow, what a wonderful exhibition, especially for people who like line drawings. I found myself noticing the dates when the various works were made. These are the originals and some hundreds of years old. The implements used by the artists has set me to do some research. Were some of the works done using quills, metal dip pens, if so how were they produced. As someone brought up using a pencil then later the ubiquitous 'Rotring" pen favoured by architects and now waterproof ink pens I found the exhibition fascinating. Looking closely at the line work I tried to determine whether the artist was left or right handed, I think I could tell, and will now research that aspect as well. I could go on but will resist.

IF YOU CAN, PLEASE MAKE AN EFFORT TO VISIT THE EXHIBITION.
