Drawing was of primary importance to Truitt throughout her life as an artist. The earliest works in this book, the first exclusively devoted to her works on paper, date from the early 1960s, when she first developed the sculptures in painted wood for which she is best known, while the latest works date from 2002, the year before she died. Illustrated in full color, these drawings include the full range of Truitt’s drawing techniques, including graphite, ink, pastel, and acrylic on paper.
