Representative of the extraordinary quality and breadth of the collection, Masterworks from the Albertina: Renaissance to Rococo spans 300 years of Western European draftsmanship, from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries, and features drawings by such renowned artists as Durer, Rembrandt, Rubens, Michelangelo, Raphael, Poussin, and Fragonard.
In all, some eighty drawings and twenty-two prints by masters of the German, Dutch, Flemish, Italian, and French schools will be on view. This traveling exhibition will remain at The Frick Art Museum through March 3, 2002.
Among the many other highlights are Rembrandtís Hundred Guilder Print, one of the artistís most famous and complex etchings; Rubensí arresting study of his young son Nicolaas; Michelangeloís Three Men Standing in Mantles, one of the artistís earliest known drawings; Raphaelís Two Women with Children, a preparatory drawing for one of the artistís frescoes in the Vatican; landscape drawings by the great sixteenth-century French classicists Poussin and Claude Lorrain; and drawings by Boucher and Fragonard, two supreme exponents of the French Rococo.
