SCRIBBLING and DOODLING From Leonardo da Vinci to Cy Twombly

Group show with works by Robert Breer
La Villa Médicis, Rome
March 3 - May 22, 2022

Through a collection of almost 300 original works dating from the Renaissance to the modern era, the two presentations of the exhibition will shed light on one of the most unconventional and overlooked aspects of the practice of drawing. By exploring the multiple features of the practice of scribbling and doodling, from sketches scribbled on the backs of canvases to expansive doodles conceived as artworks in themselves, the exhibition unveils how these experimental, transgressive, regressive or liberating graphic gestures, which appear to flout all laws and conventions, have punctuated the history of artistic creation.

Exhibition designed and organised by the French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici and by the Beaux-Arts in Paris
With the support of the National Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou, Paris
In partnership with the Istituto Centrale per la Grafica, Rome
