An extraordinary history of Netherlandish drawing, focused on the training and skill of artists during the long 17th century

With a lively narrative thread and thematic chapters, this book offers an exceptional introduction to Dutch and Flemish drawing during the long 17th century. Victoria Sancho Lobis discusses the many roles of drawing in artistic training, its function in the production of works in other media, and its emergence as a medium in its own right. Beautifully illustrated with some 120 drawings by artists including Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens, Hendrick Goltzius, Gerrit von Honthorst, and Jacob De Gheyn, this book surveys current methodologies of studying these works and features a brief history of Dutch papermaking and watermarks as well as a glossary. Paying careful attention to materials and techniques, and informed by recent conservation treatments, Lobis explains how to look at these drawings as records of experimentation and skill, true windows into the artist’s mind. 
Victoria Sancho Lobis served as curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago from 2013 to 2017 and is guest curator of this exhibition. She is also currently a lecturer in the History Department at Claremont McKenna College.
