Similar in concept, scope, and structure to Phaidon's successful volume Vitamin P, Vitamin D presents, in A-Z order, the work of 109 artists who have emerged internationally since 1990. All use drawing as a primary medium. Whether representational or abstract, small or large in scale, using only one line or rich in colors and pattern, drawings have a highly descriptive and meticulously detailed quality that is being explored by an increasing number of contemporary artists. Extending beyond images traditionally associated with this medium, Vitamin D illustrates the complexity, variety, and relevance of the practice of drawing today."--BOOK JACKET.
