Vincent van Gogh: The Drawings – at the Met

The first major American retrospective devoted to Van Gogh’s decadelong achievement as a draftsman, featuring more than 100 of his finest works in pen and ink, graphite, chalk, charcoal, and watercolor.
These graphic images, lent by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and from 50 other public and private collections, brilliantly illustrate Vincent’s own dictum: “Drawing is the root of everything.”
