THE HYPERION DRAWING SERIES

Three volumes -- beautiful reproductions in chalk tones with color tint blocks for some- fine cloth bindings- effective end paper designs and appropriate jackets, excellent values as always the case with these Hyperion publications. (1) VENETIAN DRAWINGS XIV-XVII CENTURIES, by Graziano D'Albanella. The heritage of art masterpieces of this period is significant in the field of drawings as well as the more familiar paintings. The Italian masters did preliminary sketches that are treasures of art collections- as well as finished drawings. Among those represented are Titian, Timtoretto, Vecchio, Veronese, etc. ...(2) SPANISH DRAWING XV-XIX CENTURIES, by Jose Gomez Sicre. While the quantity of available material is less in the field of Spanish art, some of the greatest painters did drawings as well, and Velasquez, Murillo, El Greco and Goya are among those chosen here.... (3) FLEMISH DRAWINGS XV-XVI CENTURIES, by Andre Leclerc. Some of the great schools are here represented, with identity of artist suggested in some instances. Brueghel, Van Eyck, Memling and some less well-known names are included...Each volume has an introductory section, with foreword by the editor, a critical presentation of the period, the artists, the contribution, followed by brief biographical notes on each artist whose work is used.
