Drawing is the technique of producing images on a surface, usually paper, by means of marks, usually of ink, graphite, chalk, charcoal, or crayon. Although drawings differ in quality, they have a common purpose--to give visible form to an idea and to express the artist's feeling about it. Besides the way in which they feel about their subjects, artists reflect in their drawing their individual approaches to techniques and tools. In line drawings, for example, form is usually expressed by line only. This volume deals with drawings' aesthetic characteristics, mediums of expression, subject matter, and some leading artists and their works.

Genre: Art

The Royal Library at Windsor Castle houses one of the world's greatest collections of drawings. Collected by individual monarchs over the last five centuries, they range from portraits by Hans Holbein, recorded in the collection on the death of King Henry VIII in 1547, to drawings by contemporary artists such as David Hockney, presented to and commissioned by The Queen during the current reign. Charles II acquired an unrivalled group of studies by Leonardo da Vinci, along with many other drawings by the artists of the Italian Renaissance; George III purchased thousands of drawings by the greatest artists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, such as Poussin, Bernini and Canaletto; and Queen Victoria and Prince Albert commissioned many hundreds of watercolours as mementoes of their lives together.
