Sketches show the handwriting of the greatest artists
All great artists have perfected their tools through sketches. Klee, Macke, Münter, Kandinsky, but also universal geniuses like Leonardo da Vinci are known for their unique sketches. What is the attraction of sketches?

Sketches are often dedicated to a detail such as feet, arms, hands or legs. People and minds are portrayed from different perspectives. Compare to www.meisterdrucke.com the pictures of Michelangelo Buonarroti. But not only people fascinate great artists! The characteristics of animals, their movements and peculiarities are masterfully banned on paper. A sketch is created quickly. It is always about grasping the moment when the artist has observed an animal. Edgar Degas perfectly captures the weight of the lifeless carcass on the forest floor in "Study on Dead Fox in the Forest", even if other details are missing.

Studies are often drawn in monochrome pencil or carbon on paper. But you can also choose a colorful subject: "Mother and Naked Child" by Mary Stevenson Cassatt focuses entirely on the intimate relationship of the two. Especially the sketch with the emphasis on how the child clings to the mother in the chest creates a great inwardness, also intimacy, which the viewer can not escape.
On the other hand, the ballet sketch by Henri de Toulouse Lautrec conveys momentum, verve and movement in a great way. Precisely because the artist concentrates only on the essential, the effect is all the more immediate. This artwork proves that some sketches are also painted in oil on cardboard. However, only the main lines are executed. Whether groups of people, fighting scenes, muscle strands, landscapes or cityscapes: in the sketch, an artist shows to what extent he has artistically penetrated a subject. That's what makes their appeal.
