    The accompanying exhibition, ‘Lines of thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to now’, will tour to venues associated with art schools around the UK, and internationally, inspiring and encouraging the practice of drawing. The exhibition and the book feature highlights of the British Museum’s outstanding Prints and Drawings collection alongside other lesser-known works.

    ‘Lines of thought’ uncovers the process and practice of drawing, illustrated by a selection of work created over 500 years. From Dürer to Degas, Michelangelo to Matisse, Rembrandt to Riley, this publication studies the types of thinking that produced their drawings – brainstorming, enquiry, experiment, association, development and decision – giving us fresh insight into the creative impulse of some of the world’s greatest artists.
