It contains outstanding sheets by the great masters from every artistic school. These four volumes devoted to the Italian drawings have detailed entries for nearly 1,000 works from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries, among them numerous reattributions and discoveries. This volume includes the works of the Carracci, Domenichino, Guercino, Guido Reni and Correggio.
