DRAWING PEOPLE: THE HUMAN FIGURE IN CONTEMPORARY ART. Roger Malbert. Artbook|D.A.P., New York, 2015. Published in association with Thames and Hudson Inc., London. 256 pp. with 318 ills. (246 col.). 35 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781938922688 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: The act of drawing has long been considered the foundation of an artistic education, and the life class essential to the formation of an artist's style and technique. Yet in the contemporary art world drawing is increasingly regarded as a medium in its own right, and the figure as a subject for ongoing exploration well beyond the sketchbook. Drawing People is a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today by 70 contemporary artists from around the world. An introduction places the medium of drawing in its historical context, discussing its intersection with photography, painting, collage and illustration, as well as its ability to intimately express thought, personality and emotion. Five chapters--Body, Self, Personal Lives, Social Reality and Fictions--include short introductions outlining each theme, followed by generously illustrated profiles on individual artists exploring their style, approach to the medium and the ideas, narratives and inspirations that lie behind their mark-making. A selection of finely reproduced images highlights the latest work by each artist.
