"From the Middle Ages to the present, master draftsmen have used metalpoint to create some of the most beautiful and technically accomplished drawings in the history of art. [This book] examines the history of this evocative medium, in which a metal stylus is used on a specially prepared surface to create lines of astoning delicacy. This beautifully illustrated book examines the practice of metalpoint over six centuries, in the work of artists ranging from Leonardo, Durer, and Rembrandt to Otto Dix and Jasper Johns. ... [It] offers fresh interpretations of a practice central to the history of drawing and will serve as the most authoritative reference on metalpoints for years to come." (dj).
