What Is a Good Drawing?

Roland, Anthony; Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
This educational film, with its clear visuals and highly informative narration, encourages an understanding and appreciation of the art of drawing. The great draftsman of every period will find his own theme, his own symbols - and his drawings express what he has to say in a medium that everyone with eyes can understand. In a really good drawing, it is obvious that the artist does not follow a formula, but invents an ever-varying repertoire of graphic signs. And every great draftsman can be recognized by his handwriting, by the degree of flow and rhythm, of sharpness and crispness he imparts to his line. If he can impress his own personal style of drawing on every subject, he has forced the world around him to see his own vision. Included in the film are drawings by Neolithic man, Pisanello, Botticelli, Raphael, Tintoretto, Michelangelo, Holbein, Durer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, Watteau, Fragonard, Goya, Ingres, Delacroix, Victor Hugo, Millet, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Cezanne, Barlach, Picasso, Henry Moore and Josef Herman.
