The Devonshire Collection of Italian Drawings, Volume 4: Venetian and North Italian Schools
by Jaffe, Michael
Phaidon, 1994. VG/VG, ex artlibrary copy with mylar cover, small label at base of spine, ink stamps on text block edges, cardpocket and barcode sticker on rear free endpaper. All that being said, it has great shelf appeal and appears unused. Black cloth with cream dustwrapper (in mylar). 320 pp., profusely illustrated. The Collection of Old Master drawings at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, home of the Dukes of Devonshire, ranks with the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle as the finest privately owned group of such drawings in Britain and as one of the great princely collections of Europe. It contains outstanding sheets by the great masters from every artistic school. The four volumes in this complete set (of which this is a single-volume ONLY) devoted to the Italian drawings have detailed entries for nearly 1,000 works from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries, among them numerous reattributions and discoveries. This volume includes the works of Pietro da Cortona, Giulio Romano and Raphael. Although the title is given as "Volume 4", that designation is found nowhere in the book from what I can see.
