Drawing from Michelangelo to now

Saturday 3 September – Sunday 6 November 2016

Poole Museum is delighted to be hosting an exhibition of drawings from the British Museum, home to one of the world’s greatest graphic collections. Lines of thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to now explores the importance of drawing as one of the most effective mediums for expressing and representing an artist’s ideas. The exhibition showcases selected drawings from masters such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo right up to artists working in the present day.

This exhibition will tour to just three UK locations, Poole, Hull and Belfast before travelling internationally. It aims to encourage art students and art lovers to engage with and learn to draw from their local and national drawing collections.

Remember to bring your sketchbook or ask at the museum for drawing materials to have a go at being inspired by the masters! or if you are between 6 and 18 years old why not take part in our drawing competition, Junior Poole Open. 

Generously supported by the Bridget Riley Art Foundation.
