Artopolis 2008 - The Drawings

Giacomo Manzu (1908-1991)

Here are my favorite drawings from the show,
and I guess it's no surprise
that the people who drew them
were born around a hundred years ago.

The above is a very large drawing,
by a very great sculptor,
and it made me shout when I saw it.

Georg Kolbe (?)

Max Beckmann (1884-1950)

Rather explicit,
but can sex between old people
ever be pornographic?

more like endearing.

Hong Purme

I found very little Asian brush painting
in this show
(apparently there was a gallery of it,
but I missed it)

I sure liked the work of this
young Korean woman, though.

Hong Purume

even down to the detail areas,
everything feels majestic - cosmic.

More of her work
can be found

Wilhelm Lehmbruck (1881-1918)

Here's another great sculptor.

I've never seen his drawings before,
but I think I've been trying to imitate his style
for many years.

Wilhelm Lehmbruck is the epitomy of the sculpture I really fail to relate to. I prefer this little sketch to anything else I have seen of his.
