A Private Collection. Prints and Drawings spanning Five Centuries.

Giulio Romano, Domenico del Barbiere, Italian School circa 1600, Pierre Biard the Younger, William Hogarth, Henri Charles Guerard, Hendrick Goltzius, Willem Outgertsz Akersloot, Adriaen van Ostade, George Nikolaus Ritter.

Emanuel von Baeyer Cabinet is pleased to present a selection of works from our new online exhibition of prints and selected drawings spanning five centuries.
The selection stems from a private collector whose focus on printmaking and very fine and early impressions, often with an important provenance, is reflected in this display.
The exhibition spans a range of subjects, including portraits, allegories, genre scenes, decorative arts, urban and garden views.
The works on our website cover five centuries, dating from the Italian Renaissance to the German New Objectivity. To reflect this range, the display is split by school - Italian, French, English, Dutch and German - and is then presented chronologically.
Please visit https://evbaeyer-cabinet.com/ to view the full exhibition.
