15 Year Anniversary

at The Baker Museum

October 24, 2014 — January 18, 2015

Drawing’s inherent immediacy allows viewers to follow the artist’s creative steps. However, drawing was once considered only a basic art form, a point of departure for artists exploring themes for subsequent paintings and sculptures. In the 20th century, radically new approaches to the medium eschewed the academic criteria of the past through abstraction, urban scenes, illustrations and cryptography.

Including work by American artists from The Baker Museum’s permanent collection, On Paper presents a variety of themes through diverse styles and materials. This exhibition is a complement to Fine Lines: American Drawings from the Brooklyn Museum.

This exhibition has been organized by Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum.
