A celebration of drawing from some of the countries most renowed, respected and most-loved ilustrators, including David Hockney, Quentin Blake and Ronald Searle. 'Good Old Drawing' celebrates and champions this most basic and yet fundamental of artistic forms. Too often neglected and disparaged in favour of flashier and more controversial alternatives, the power of drawing is on shown in G.O.D., with all its power to enchant, bewitch, provoke and entertain.
