The master drawings at the Crocker Art Museum, dating from the late fifteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries, form an unusually rich and historic collection, known to include many keystones of the history of art. Sheets by Carpaccio, Dürer, Callot and Boucher only scratch the surface of a collection whose sources include the great eighteenth-century collectors Pierre-Jean Mariette, Pierre Crozat, Joshua Reynolds and Antoine-Joseph Dezallier d'Argenville, their seventeenth-century predecessors Evrard Jabach, Nicolas Lanier, Jan Pietersz. Read more
