Description

 

An adventurous and brilliant draughtsman, Guercino (1591–1666) was one of the great Italian Baroque artists. He drew constantly, with a passion that revealed itself in the vigour and intensity of his preparatory studies. He explored, in drawings, different possibilities for literary and religious subjects, landscapes, and scenes of everyday life – which stand alone as independent works of art.
