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.
