As part of her research for her 2012 exhibition at The Drawing Room, London, artist Kate Davis made extensive use of pre-20th century drawing manuals and treatises held in the Rare Books Collection of the Glasgow School of Art Library. In particular, she was interested in how these manuals reflect the political, social and cultural ideologies of the time. Using a variety of sources, including anatomical and medical atlases, she photographed these volumes and incorporated motifs from them (such as feet, arms and musculature) into her own drawings and sculptural installations.
