Arshile Gorky (1904-1948) was a seminal figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement. His drawings are beautiful, complex and sensual creations, the products of a technical mastery that bespoke a new power of abstraction within modern art. They are also pivotal to the understanding of his art and play a major part in the development and realization of his paintings. This exhibition catalogue focuses on how Gorky's drawings function both in relation to his paintings and as individual works of art. Gorky's changing styles and precise approaches to drawing are discussed in detail and contrasted with the spontaneous and direct execution generally associated with Abstract Expressionism.

Janie C. Lee is Curator of Drawings at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her publications include Robert Motherwell Drawings: A Retrospective, 1941 to the Present; Cubist Drawings, 1907-1929; and Brice Marden Drawings: The Whitney Museum of American Art Collection. Melvin P. Lader is Professor of Art History at George Washington University and has published extensively on Gorky, concentrating on the artist's drawings over the last seven years. He is also the author of an upcoming Gorky Catalogue Raisonne.
