Among the many highlights is a large drawing by Joan Miro from 1930. Executed with a single, uninterrupted line, this work highlights the artists tremendous ability as a draughtsman and his affinity for the line. This drawing is a magnificent example of the importance of drawing for Miro, who understood it as autonomous practice – not as mere preparatory work – that allowed him to experiment with technique and expression. Examples of this series of drawings from 1930 are in numerous museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Art Institute of Chicago.

One of the masters of Synthetic Cubism, Juan Gris, is represented with a delicate landscape drawing. Paysage (Maisons à Beaulieu) 1918 explores volumetric shapes and showcases the artist’s contributions to Cubism.

Renowned architect Zaha Hadid is represented with a series of drawings for a building in, what was at the time, West Berlin. Showcasing the artist’s daring and unique signature style, the drawings promise a visionary addition to Berlin’s cityscape that was regrettably never executed. Galerie Gmurzynska has had a longstanding relationship with the late architect, showcasing her work and collaborating with her on exhibition design. The gallery’s main space in Zurich features an interior design by Hadid, which was left in place after her passing to preserve her unique vision.
