The show also embraces modern pieces

The January 24-31 event will run in New York's Upper East Side galleries, with themed exhibitions filling more than two dozen buildings.

The event was founded in 2006, and also runs in London in July, showcasing the finest in pencil, ink and chalk and charcoal drawings from the 16th to the 21st century.

"By agreeing to coordinate their exhibitions during a single week in galleries on New York's Upper East Side, the world's most respected dealers in master drawings have made it easier for both private and institutional clients to see the newest items on the market from the very top tier of specialists," said dealer and creator Crispian Riley-Smith.

"For individuals interested in learning more about the quality and range of drawings on offer, there's simply no better way to expose yourself to the very finest examples during a single week each year."

Co-founder Margot Gordon added: "People who love master drawings understand that each stroke of the pen or pencil represents the very first creative spark of the artist. You are being invited to enter the artist's mind and share his passion.

"No other art form quite expresses an artist's creativity as well as a good drawing."
