It is with great sadness that we learn about the death of Karsten Schubert, who served as a member of our Advisory Board for over a decade. Karsten championed the importance of Drawing Room as an institution and generously kick started our Study Library collection which has gone from strength to strength. He kindly offered loans from his personal collection which gave us the opportunity to exhibit exquisite drawings by greats such as Ingres, Picasso and Auerbach. His inimitable humour and insatiable enthusiasm for drawing and for scholarship will be sorely missed.
