30 January | New York
Launch Slideshow

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.
