Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This exhibition catalog from the Art Institute of Chicago showcases a generous gift of Italian Renaissance drawings collected over the last 30 years by Jean and Steven Goldman. An introduction describing how the gift came about precedes two opening statements by Jean, herself an art historian. In the first, she delineates the collection's scope and explains her selection criteria. In the second, she provides basic historical context for these Mannerist and Baroque works on paper spanning 200 years, describes the techniques, methods, and materials employed by the artists, and indicates the change of style from decade to decade. The illustrated catalog section includes descriptive and historical commentary on each work. Featured also are artist biographies arranged by region and an alphabetical index of artists for quick reference. This well-assembled, linear feast contains not only the works of major artists like Raphael, Parmigianino, and Tintoretto, but also those of lesser-known extraordinary draftsmen. VERDICT Another great Old Masters collection for art students and scholars to study and ponder. Recommended for large public, academic, museum, and special art book collections.—Ellen Bates, New York
