In the Middle Ages, artists explored and tested the medium of drawing, producing whimsical sketches, illustrated treatises, and finished drawings of extraordinary refinement. This title examines and celebrates the achievements of medieval draftsmen. It presents leaves from more than fifty manuscripts dating from the 9th to the early 14th century.
