Hatched! Creating Form with Line
Date: Daily through June 1, 2014,
Location: West Pavilion, Plaza Level, Getty Center
Celebrating the art of hatching—closely–drawn parallel lines that suggest relief or shadow—this exhibition includes powerful examples from the Getty Museum's drawings collection by artists as diverse as Leonardo da Vinci and Vincent van Gogh. One of the most basic and timeless artistic techniques, hatching can create the immediate illusion of three-dimensional solidity on a two-dimensional sheet of paper. Extremely versatile, it can also be used to give the impression of movement or speed.
