"Brice Marden: Workbook Drawings"
1999-10-03 until 2000-01-02
Museum of Fine Art, Houston
Houston, TX, USA United States of America

Brice Marden is, without question, one of the greatest draftsmen of his generation. The peripatetic Marden always travels with workbooks of varying sizes, as he draws constantly. The workbooks serve as finished works in themselves and as first thoughts for paintings. These workbooks trace Mardenís route from the early geometrically-configured imagery of the 1960s and early 1970s through an architectonic phase of the late 1970s/early 1980s to the sublime calligraphic images of the last 15 years. They also trace his medium from charcoal to graphite encaustic to Mont Blanc pen and ink to sticks. The workbooks will be supplemented by works in the museum's collection by artists who influenced Marden and several additional loans of early work.
