Drawing From Life

Drawing From Life by David HockneySo who's in your pantheon of great masters of drawing? I asked him. "Ingres, Degas, and van Gogh. And Rembrandt," he said. And Picasso, I added. He concurred. "And Toulouse-Lautrec," he went on. I said, what about Egon Schiele? Better than Klimt, I said. "No, Klimt can be very good," Hockney said. "I saw a Klimt nude once, drawn with a green pencil and a red pencil, very soft. Amazing."
