This beautiful and important book highlights the collection of European drawings at the Yale University Art Gallery, one of America s premier university museums. From intimate studies to exquisite finished compositions, this selection of works documents the history of European drawing practices beginning with late-medieval model books and progressing to the verge of the modern period. The accompanying textwritten by a team of scholarsoffers a unique introduction to various critical and technical aspects of the study of master drawings, brought to life through drawings from a range of national schools and in a variety of media.
Among the drawings examined in this handsomely produced volume are an animated pen and ink sketch by Giulio Romano, a pastoral landscape by Claude Lorrain, a forceful and humorous caricature by Guercino, a scene from the epic poem "Orlando Furioso" by Jean-Honore Fragonard, and a delicate portrait by Edgar Degas."
