"From Drawing to Painting offers a unique perspective by interweaving biographical information about five renowned French artists - Nicolas Poussin, Antoine Watteau, Jean-Honore Fragonard, Jacques-Louis David, and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres - with a look at dozens of their drawings and the links that they have to their paintings. Presenting over 250 illustrations, this book explores drawing as a site of reflection, the space between the idea of a painted image and its realization on canvas." "Originally delivered as a series of Mellon Lectures at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, From Drawing to Painting gives the reader an unprecedented view of the artistic process."--BOOK JACKET.
