Over the past twenty years, Julie and David Tobey have assembled one of the preeminent collections of Italian Old Master drawings in private hands. Ranging across the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, this exhibition, consisting of approximately seventy drawings, covers all the principal centers of Italian art - Florence, Rome, Naples, Bologna, Parma, Venice, Genoa, Milan - and features masterpieces by a distinguished roster of great draftsmen, among them Correggio, Bernini, Guercino, Guido Reni, Canaletto, and Tiepolo. Impressive in its variety, the gamut of subject matter includes figure studies, historical and mythological narratives, landscapes, vedute, botanical drawings, motifs copied from or inspired by classical antiquity, and designs for painted compositions.

David Ekserdjian, professor, Department of the History of Art and Film, University of Leicester.
