Marks of Genius features some of the most important drawings from the superlative collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

The selection of drawings, watercolors, gouaches and pastels dating from the Middle Ages to the present includes stellar examples by such masters as Guercino, Annibale Carracci, George Romney, François Boucher, Thomas Gainsborough, Edgar Degas, Käthe Kollwitz, Egon Schiele, Emil Nolde, Amedeo Modigliani, Henri Matisse, Alfredo Ramos Martínez, Roy Lichtenstein and Ed Ruscha. This eye-opening exhibition illuminates the historical and ongoing role of drawing as a means of study, observation and problem solving, as an outpouring of the artist’s imagination, and as a method of realizing a finished work of art. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition. This is a ticketed exhibition.
