about this item

The catalog for the international loan exhibition: Drawings for Paintings in the Age of Rembrandt captures the different ways in which artists used preliminary or construction drawings when composing and refining their paintings. Seventeenth-century Dutch artists made many types of preliminary drawings, including broad compositional sketches, drawings of the landscape in their sketchbooks, counterproofs, construction drawings, and individual figural studies. Artists also indicated compositional ideas on their canvases and panels using underdrawings that are revealed through infrared reflectography. This volume features a wide variety of subject types and artists, among others Hendrick Avercamp, Gerrit Berckheyde, Aelbert Cuyp, Jan van Goyen, Adriaen van Ostade, Jacob van Ruisdael, Pieter Saenredam, and Rembrandt van Rijn. This fully illustrated exhibition catalog includes three scholarly essays as well as entries on all the artists included in the show, written by these and other experts.
