Italian Master Drawings Exhibition, National Gallery, Washington
Italian Master Drawings Exhibition, National Gallery, Washington

The splendors of Italian draftsmanship from the late Renaissance to the height of the neoclassical movement are showcased in an exhibition of 65 superb drawings assembled by the European private collector Wolfgang Ratjen (1943–1997). Works are featured by many of the most important artists of the period, from Giulio Romano to Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo. Outstanding Venetian examples include those by such artists as Domenico Tintoretto, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, and Canaletto, whose elegant rendering of the "Giovedì Grasso" festival in Venice is perhaps his finest surviving drawing.
