Central European Drawings in the Crocker Collection presents a survey of five centuries of draftsmanship from Central Europe. An interpretive and fully illustrated (with many illustrations in color) catalogue of one of the oldest public collections in the United States, it considers a wide variety of types of drawings. Works by well known masters Albrecht Dürer, Johann Rottenhammer, and Johann Georg von Dillis, are included, but many surprises are also in store, among them comparatively rare sheets by such important figures as Karel Skréta, Wenzel Hollar, and Johann Holzer.
A major reference work, this book is an important contribution to scholarship that will be of use to students, professors, collectors, and amateurs alike.
