Summary: This catalogue is the first publication of all the Venetian drawings in the Royal Collection of Graphic Art at The National Gallery of Denmark (Statens Museum for Kunst). Few of these drawings have ever been published, and only a handful has been shown to the public within living memory. Research in connection with this catalogue has revealed that not only is the number if drawings from this geographic area surprisingly high, but the quality of the drawings is stupendous, counting some of the most beautiful sheets in the collection. Furthermore the comprehensiveness of this part of the collection has proved extraordinary with a very even coverage of the development of draughtsmanship in Venice and the Venetian main land from the 1480s, when sketching on paper became common, through the lesser known 17th century to the fall of the Venetian republic in 1797. This catalogue presents more than 200 fine drawings by Vittore Carpaccio, Moretto da Brescia, Domenico Campagnola, Jacopo Bassano, Paolo Farinati and Paolo Veronese, large groups of studies by Palma Giovane and Antonio Vassilacchi called Aliense, as well as sheets by 18th-century draughtsmen such as Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini, Gaspare Diziani, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and his son Domenico, Francesco Fontebasso, Francesco Guardi and Giovanni Battista Piranesi.
