The subject of the research of this work by Dr. Maria Pavlovska research the problem, content and importance of the visual linear record: the drawing, treated and understood as a primary visual record and document that consequently influences the development of all other visual disciplines: painting, sculpture and architecture. In doing so, the historical development of the drawing phenomenon is set in the context of a proper exploration of the visual artwork. This research particularly emphasizes the importance of drawing as the primary structure of any work of art, giving the drawing itself the meaning and function to persist and be recognized as an autonomous document, an autonomous visual form.
