Overview

Carracci, Tintoretto, Poussin, Guercino, Gainsborough, Romney, Fragonard, Tiepolo, Blake, Turner, Gericault, Delacroix, Menzel, Whistler, Klimt, Rodin, Derain, Tobey, de Kooning, and Diebenkorn are among the artists represented in the Stanford Museum. Its collection of nearly 1,500 drawings is strongest in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but also includes notable drawings of the Late Renaissance, Baroque, and contemporary periods, many of which have until now remained unpublished. This volume presents 140 of the drawings with a full-page duotone or color illustration accompanied by an essay consisting of a critical text, as well as a complete physical description, bibliography, provenance, and exhibition history. Additional drawings are presented on a smaller scale and with abbreviated descriptions.
