CODART have drawn attention to the fact that the Musée des Beaux-Arts d’Orléans have just published a new catalogue of their collection of Northern drawings.

According to their article:

Largely unknown to the general public and art historians, the Orléans collection comprises some 900 drawings by Dutch, Flemish, German, Austrian, English, Swiss and Swedish artists from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century. A selection of more than 150 drawings, most of which have never been shown to the public, is presented in the exhibition.

The catalogue raisonné by David Mandrella, a specialist in Dutch and Flemish art, is the result of several years of research. It includes entries and reproductions of all of the drawings in the collection, from Goltzius to Jongkind, through Rubens, Jordaens and Spranger.
