Master Drawings: From the Collection of the Minneapolis Museum of ArtsBooks
Master Drawings: From the Collection of the Minneapolis Museum of Arts is a lavishly illustrated book presenting one hundred significant drawings from the 15th to the 21st century, including new discoveries and works by both celebrated masters and others who deserve to be better known. Catalogue entries for each drawing include complete documentation, provenance, and bibliography. The text provides important new scholarship and attributions; examines a variety of themes, such as connoisseurship, patronage, materials and techniques, watermarks, and collectors' stamps; and discusses how a work fits into the artist's oeuvre or represents larger developments in artistic movements or trends in artistic production. The catalogue was published to accompany the exhibition as it appeared in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts from July 13, 2014 to September 21, 2014. 288 pages.
