After the famous exhibition “Copier créer” curated by Jean Pierre Cuzin inthe “Musée du Louvre” in 1993, the practice of drawing art has acquired a renovatedinterest.This exhibition revised the theoretical concepts introduced by Bober and others in thesecond half of the XXth century and increased the value of the contribution of drawingin the study of art history instead of the idea of copying. An important catalog and essayby Haverkamp, Begemann and Login, titled “Creative copies”, appeared in 1988 andcontained the best examples of the main collections.The last but not least important consequence was the collaboration betweeninternational museums, using their own spaces, with contemporary artists. Thehermeneutic drawings and paintings by Markus Lüpertz in the Munich Glyptotheck andthe exhibition of Giacometti’s drawings shown in the IVAM in 2000 are two excellentexamples of the European relevance in this field.I want to analyze here twenty years of drawing done in different museums andinstitutions around the world and its close relationship with the process of recoveringour historical memory by using visual art.
