Master Drawings from the Yale University Art Gallery
by Suzanne Boorsch (Author), John J. Marciari (Author)
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 text―written by a team of scholars―offers 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.
