This handsome book presents highlights from one of America’s preeminent private collections of Old Master drawings, assembled over the past fifteen years by Julie and David Tobey. Ranging in date from the 16th through the 18th century, some 70 drawings—many previously unpublished—are featured, including works by brilliant draftsmen such as Correggio, Parmigianino, Giulio Romano, Bernini, Poussin, Guercino, Ribera, Canaletto, and Tiepolo. Impressive in their variety of subjects, the drawings include figure studies, historical and mythological narratives, landscapes, vedute, botanical drawings, motifs copied from or inspired by classical antiquity, and designs for painted compositions. All the works are illustrated in color and accompanied by numerous comparative illustrations; brief biographies of each artist are also included.

George R. Goldner is Drue Heinz Chairman, Department of Drawings and Prints; Linda Wolk-Simon, Carmen C. Bambach, and Perrin Stein are Curators; Stijn Alsteens is Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, all at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Mary Vaccaro is a Professor of Art History at the University of Texas, Arlington.
