Vincent Van Gogh.
“I assure you that there’s a lot involved in compositions with figures. ... It’s like weaving... you must control and keep an eye on several things at once.”—Vincent van Gogh, The Hague, October 8, 1882, to Theo van Gogh

Marc Brandenburg...deliberately makes use of fast images only to freeze them in graphite, in black and white, by means of a lengthy, obsessive drawing process. Brandenburg draws from his own photos and images from magazines, which he distorts using a photocopier, converts to negative images with the computer and then traces.
These reversals have a stunning effect: portraits or images distorted to the point of abstraction take on an intensity and sharpness that alienates the subject while lending them a ruthless precision at the same time. Nevertheless, Brandenburg does not believe in the power of the ultimate, singular image – instead he often hangs his drawings close together in a manner that resembles film sequences.

Georgio Morandi etching: 'I believe that nothing can be more abstract, more unreal, than what we actually see. Matter exists, of course, but has no meaning of its own, such as the meanings that we attach to it. We can know only that a cup is a cup, that a tree is a tree'
