Tracing Vision: Modern Drawings from the Georgia Museum of Art

Tracing Vision: Modern Drawings from the Georgia Museum of Art
The latest in the Georgia Museum of Art?s series of publications on drawings from its permanent collection, Tracing Vision focuses on nineteenth- and twentieth-century works by a huge range of artists. Contemporary feminist artists Lenore Tawney and Nancy Grossman are represented alongside Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, and Chuck Close is closely followed by American Scene artist Howard Cook and turn-of-the-century muralist Kenyon Cox. Carol Nathanson, who wrote by far the largest number of entries, also supplies a marvelous introductory essay that highlights the ties among this diverse selection of drawings and focuses on the importance of the medium throughout art history.

Carol Nathanson is professor emeritus of art history at Wright State University. Her research interests include early-twentieth-century modernism, especially American-British connections, and issues relating to women artists. In 1997, she served as curator and produced the catalogue for an exhibition of the art of American Fauve Anne Estelle Rice at the Hollis Taggart Galleries, the first exhibition in the United States of work by that expatriate painter. Her articles have appeared in the Cleveland Museum of Art Bulletin, American Art Journal, Archives of American Art Journal, Woman?s Art Journal, and Dreiser Studies.
