Review quote

"This distinguished Swiss collection ranges from the Renaissance to 1900 and represents a diversity of artistic schools in Italy, France, Great Britain, and northern Europe."-Antiques Antiques "... a catalog that both documents the items on display and creates a resource for future study, and, as such, it belongs in every art library, large academic and public collections, and any institution that has a drawings collection. Highly recommended." - Library Journal Library Journal
