5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 3 of the Gettty collection of Drawings -119 drawings 27 Jan 2014
By Dr - Published on Amazon.com
This is the third of the catalogues of European Drawings in the Getty
The index at the back covers the first Three Catalogues.
Entries in the Third catalogue are in BOLD type and so are easy to recognise. The entries in the first 2 volumes are in light type and in italics and separated into volume 1 and volume 2 I think the system works well
It allows to see were the Getty's main strengths are. It also makes apparent that there are continuing to broaden the scope of the Collection. They have also added further works to artists they already hold ,but by the same measure they haven't added to there stock of Rembrandt's and Raphael's- one could quote more examples but I think they are taking a very measured approach to there collecting. Areas of weakness are being filled in. They got their first Michelangelo ( his drawings are hard to come by and usually very very expensive ) There is also a stunning Martin Schongauer "studies of Peonies- number 73, it is illustrated in full colour exact date query 1470-80's but read the text
My guess is they have around 300 to 350 artists and some 400 plus drawings-sorry I didn't count them up

The Getty continues to seek excellent examples of many major artists drawings. They have continued to build on their strengths as well as continuing to broaden the collection
There are 13 colour plates, the rest are excellent Black and White reproductions
The text and illustrations are well done- I have gone into more detail on volume 1 of this series

I have the First four volumes in this series,I am not sure if further volumes have appeared.
I can recommend them all, it shows how a drawings collection can still be built , although part of the Getty's success is due to its very deep pockets and it's vast Research Institute
That said it is still a noble achievement
