This January Sotheby's Old Master Drawings auction presents works by some of the most important names in art history, including Rubens, Carracci, Tiepolo and Constable, to name but a few. Inspired by these masters of the medium, contemporary illustration and sketchbook artists – whose works are currently on view at NoMad-based gallery Sugarlift – chose their favorite pieces from the sale. Ahead, view their selections and discover why whether in 1519 or 2019, these artists' shared craft remains incredibly compelling.
On 27 January from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM, come join the artists featured in this slideshow in Sotheby's New York galleries where you can sketch the art on view in a notebook provided by Moleskine. All experience levels welcome.
