University of Dundee
Lamb Gallery

The Lamb Gallery re-opens with a stimulating exhibition of drawings from the University’s extensive collections

About this event

Drawing is often seen as the fundamental basis of art, as well as being an important tool in other forms of creative thinking. This exhibition presents highlights from the University’s wide-ranging collection of around 2,000 drawings. It includes rarely seen work by many renowned artists including Thomas Gainsborough, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, W Q Orchardson, David Foggie, James McIntosh Patrick, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, John Johnstone, Joe McIntyre, David Mach, Will Maclean, Stephen Sutcliffe, Annie Cattrell and many others.

We have grouped the works into several themes:

• Portraits and figure studies

• Life drawing (from the nude model)

• Drawings for sculptures

• Still life and topographical drawings

• Scientific drawing and art inspired by science

• Illustration and design

• Comics art

To help us with COVID safety, please book a place in advance of your visit on Eventbrite
