Goldman Collection 2014
This is the second appearance of the Goldman's Italian drawing collection in the gallery which they funded and to which the museum attached their name.
(It first appeared six years ago, and I wrote about it here )
Absent is the recently attributed Raphael (what happened to it ?) --as well as the Cambiaso (that one I really miss)
Gallery signage notes that this may have been drawn from life -- or from a wax maquette.
These are some rather fine details - but overall this drawing, as well as the others, are no more than studies or storyboards - and I don't share the artworld's fascination with them.
But then, when I look up images of the paintings done by the same artists -- they don't look too appealing either.
As I recall, the museum's last exhibit of contemporary figure drawing occurred about 25 years ago - and very few of those, if any, were drawn from live models.
