Mantegna to Matisse: Master Drawings from The Courtauld

Good show, nice to see all the lines. Highlights: a rubens of his new 16 yo wife. A soft ingres. Some British watercolours. A mass of styles. Almost makes you want to draw.

Mmm it's hard to know where to draw the line (so to speak) between drawing and watercolour. ;)

It's like pastels and coloured pencil. Sometimes you see them classified as painting. Then there's brush and ink 'drawings' - or 'paintings'? If you use a brush is it still drawing? If you use more than one colour is it still drawing? Drawing is a tricky category...
