Close to 100 figurative drawings in black and white, and in color, mostly nudes in love or strife, some disastered by life, some with incisive or caustic words integrated in the images. This is a retrospective of Ferlinghetti's graphic work and play, ranging from his early drawings made in Paris ateliers, to yesterday's sessions sketching models in his San Francisco studio.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti, poet and founder of City Lights Books, author of A Coney Island of the Mind and Pictures of the Gone World, among numerous other books, has been drawing from life since his student days in Paris where he frequented the Academie Julien and where he did his first oil painting.
