Edited by Christian Rattemeyer. With contributions by Gary Garrels, Christian Rattemeyer, and Harvey S. Shipley Miller

 
Compass in Hand: Selections from The Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawings Collection 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, former curator of drawings and prints. A conversation between Miller and Gary Garrels, former chief curator of drawings and prints, recounts the process through which the collection was assembled, providing a unique panoramic view of drawing and collecting today. 320 pp.; 845 illus.
