Product Description

Compass in Hand: Selections from The Judith Rothschild Foundation (HC)

By Christian Rattemeyer. Interview with Harvey S. Shipley Miller by Gary Garrels

Compass in Hand brings together approximately 250 works from the Judith Rothschild Foundation's extraordinary gift of over 2,500 drawings to The Museum of Modern Art in 2005. Formed over two years by Harvey S. Shipley Miller (the Foundation's trustee), the collection was conceived to be a broad survey of contemporary drawing practive. It more than fulfills that goal, juxtaposing drawings of the 1960s and 1970s with major works of the past twenty years by such artists as Kai Althoff, R. Crumb, Peter Doig, Marcel Dzama, Mark Grotjahn, Charline von Heyl, Martin Kippenberger, Sherrie Levine, Agnes Martin, Fred Sandback, Paul Thek, and Andrea Zittel, among many others.

Compass in Hand features an essay by Christian Rattemeyer, The Harvey S. Shipley Miller Associate Curator of Drawings. A conversation between Miller and Gary Garrels, former Chief Curator of Drawings, recounts the process through which the collection was assembled, providing a unique panoramic view of drawing and collecting today. Includes 408 color images.
