Format: Hardcover
This book clearly demonstrates the breadth and quality of drawing by contemporary artists. Published in 2002 it contains outstanding plates of a number of international artists tracing their drawing using themes like mental maps, architecture, happiness, decoration, science, nature or popular culture. It provides sound evidence about the relevance of drawing which is useful to any artist and art historian - especially challenging those beliefs that drawing is a secondary medium to painting and sculpture. The diversity and resilience of drawing illustrated is impressive and inspirational. You will be left in no doubt that drawing is completely relevant to contemporary art and as a medium in its own right, is here to stay.

HASH(0x943120d8) out of 5 stars a decent and wholly predictable show/book 30 July 2003
By Matt Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
None of the decisions in this show were very difficult to make. All of the current stars in the drawing/painting world are present (John Currin, Kara Walker, Elizabeth Peyton, Kai Atoff, etc.) and the work they've offered is mediocre. That is not to say the work is bad by normal standards, they are the best of the contemporary scene for a reason: they're good. But, looking at each artist's best work, none of this is it. The essays are kind of hokey and embarrassing (in a bad way). The book is worth buying if you want to seem like you're "with it" when it comes to contemporary art, or if you are a student (such as myself, forever) and need it for research purposes to aid your own studio practice.

HASH(0x94312204) out of 5 stars At the top 7 Feb. 2007
By David Wicks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Drawing Now does a good job of critically displaying the work of many contemporary artists. Unlike Vitamin D, this book does not take a shotgun approach to viewing contemporary art, and as a result is more satisfying to behold. Not all the artists represented have great work, but you get quality reproductions of it, and worthwhile commentary on each of the thematic "propositions" in the book. Worth buying if you have the money. Worth renewing your library's copy if you don't.

HASH(0x94c5c258) out of 5 stars Provocative Survey 2 Nov. 2006
By Denise Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The catalogue that accompanies the Drawing Now exhibition held at the Museum of Modern Art is just as well thought and carefully crafted. The show is divided into eight themes that bring a solid foundation to a wide scope of works. Each section in the catalogue begins with an insightful essay further developing the rich ideas behind the show. The beautiful illustrations and large format of the book further compliment the important artworks included in the exhibition.

HASH(0x943124bc) out of 5 stars A strong drawing text 20 April 2008
By LP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I use this text in my Graduate Drawing class. There is a broad range of contemporary drawing included in the book, which gives the reader a snapshot of the variety of drawing being produced at the moment. The text in each chapter is brief, but complements the work, and contextualizes the drawings. I especially enjoy the fact that there are artists in the book whose work I like, and several whose work I don't really care for.

Here is an actual book about drawing... NOT how to draw! Very difficult to find a book like that which discusses the works, artist and content well!
