Collecting Prints and Drawings in Europe, c. 1500-1750 Hardback
Edited by Christopher Baker, Caroline Elam, Genevieve Warwick
Prints and drawings have been keenly collected in Europe since at least the early sixteenth century.
Relatively modest in price, they offered artists, amateurs and collectors of a systematic turn of mind the opportunity to put together holdings with a wide representation of different hands, schools and types of subject.
Prints and drawings are traditionally treated separately, but their collecting is shown here to raise many interrelated issues.
Employing a wide range of methodologies, the essays in this volume offer a number of innovative investigations into the collecting, perception, classication and display of works on paper.
