Summary Presents an exhibition catalog of 51 Italian Old Mster drawings from the Ratjen Foundation, Vaduz, Liechtenstein. These drawings, assembled over the past three decades by Dr. Wolfgang Ratjen, span some 250 years, beginning with Giulio Romano in the first half of the sixteenth century, continuing with a strong preference for baroque and rococo sketches, and ending with a few neoclassical studies from the late eighteenth century. Although the drawings originate from many regions of Italy, the Venetian school predominates. The catalog is fully illustrated in color showing to good advantage the unusual number of drawings enlivened by colored inks, tempera, and chalks.
