ART & EXHIBITIONS LIST
_ DRAWING CONCLUSIONS
Wilkie Drawings, National Gallery. Much can hang on the turn at a head in the composition at a picture as this exhibition at Wilkie's drawings makes very clear. He was a master of drawing but his innovative, and hugely popular, subject matter oi contemporary genre scenes evidently gave him endless compositional problems in his paintings. He resolved them, iorthe most part, in sketches, and these, the bare bones oi his paintings, are shown
together with photographs of the completed pictures.
Like the National Gallery's previous mini-exhibitions, which draw attention to one particular aspect at their collection, this show has been well and clearly thought through and it makes a neat and interesting little study. (Sally Kinnes)
