Woodcuts of the Japanese Winter
Japanese artists have long responded to an altered world of frozen forms, stilled by a blanket of snow. In woodcuts they used blank paper to convey the purifying beauty of snow in a transformed landscape where even 'the depths of the night became white'.
Italian Drawings: Highlights from the Collection
Italian Drawings: Highlights from the Collection brings together works by some of the world’s greatest artists. Because they are so sensitive to light, drawings are not kept on permanent display. This exhibition, therefore, gives us a rare chance to appreciate works by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo and Titian.
Portraits by Ottavio Leoni (1578-1630)
The Fitzwilliam Museum's collection includes nearly all of Leoni's portrait prints, which came from the collections of Lord Fitzwilliam (1745-1816) and John Charrington (1856-1939). The exhibition also includes two drawings by Leoni from the Fitzwilliam Museum's collection and five drawings reproduced with the generous permission of the Master, Fellows, and Scholars of Downing College in the University of Cambridge
