    Description"Drawings of Choice" reflects the wide range of contemporary drawing - from the casual sketch to the elaborate picture, presenting preparatory studies as well as accomplished, technically labored drawings. This book includes works by 46 artists from an extraordinary, privately held collection of contemporary American drawings from the 1960s to the present that emphasize the crucial role that drawings play in the development of the artistic process. Represented are works by prominent American artists, as well as younger, lesser-known artists. This collection is particularly strong in its group of minimal and conceptual art from the 1960s and 1970s, by artists such as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, Richard Serra, and Lawrence Weiner. The very personal character of this collection and especially its exceptionally high level of quality make it a perfect subject for the study and teaching of contemporary drawing and art in general.
