Extraordinary in its breadth, if not depth, MoMA is currently showing selections from the largest gift of drawings ever received, 2,500 drawings by 650 artists from The Judith Rothschild Foundation. The exhibition, “Compass In Hand”, includes  354 works by 177 artists of those artists, the largest show of drawings MoMA has ever stood. You can read the NYT review here and, while it is not altogether favorable, I myself loved the slides. Never mind the NYT – here’s hoping I can get to the City before the show ends on July 27, 2009.
