Catalogue Note

“Deep down, drawing reflects a moral attitude: from the moment it becomes a skeleton for flesh, it also structures a search for intensity. In fact, drawing cannot betray us, it is the best seismograph of an artist’s affective and cultural capacity” (Antonio Saura cited in: Exh. Cat., Strasbourg, Musée d'Art moderne et contemporain, Antonio Saura: Crucifixions, 2002, p. 45).
