Drawing is one of the most basic and enduring of human activities. It remains one of the simplest and most effective forms of communication requiring only a pencil and paper, stick and sand or crayon and wall.


It is little wonder then that drawing includes such a vast and all encompassing range of creativity. The display features figure studies and portraiture, illustration, preparatory sketches, landscape and topography by historic and contemporary artists including Augustus John, Graeme Sutherland, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Will Maclean, Thomas Gainsborough, Amelia Long, William Gillies and Ian Fleming.
