Drawing Surrealism

One thing I am making time for is the Morgan Library & Museum’s current exhibition “Drawing Surrealism.” Not only does the New York Times call it sensational, I am a forevermore fan of Dali. The curated observation of the role drawing played on the development of surrealism promises a poignant perspective from 160+ works on paper by iconic artists including Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington, and Joan Miró. William M. Griswold, director of the Morgan, shares: “The show breaks new art historical ground by demonstrating the fundamental importance of drawing to the surrealist movement on the worldwide stage.” Here’s to dreams, happenstance, ingenuity and glimmerings into everything.
