LATE MIDDLE AGES AND EARLY MODERN TIMES


In accordance with the number of works that have remained extant from this time segment, the stock of drawings is more limited. However, the period is represented by several most valuable incunabula, such as the early work of Albrecht Dürer, drawings by Antonio Pisano, called Pisanello, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Hieronymus Bosch.

The collection of graphic art prints comprises excellent specimens from the beginnings of woodcutting and copperplate etching, e.g., by Master E. S., by Martin Schongauer and Israel van Meckenem. Also worth noting are the early Italian graphic art prints, and the German single sheet prints, where several among them remained unique one-offs, with print runs of just one.
