Final Exhibition

Albrecht Dürer, Der Zeichner des liegenden Weibes, 1525, from: Underweysung der Messung, 1538, woodcut. Graphische Sammlung ETH Zurich.

The fourth and final exhibition in the 150-year jubilee series of the Collection of Graphic Art (Graphische Sammlung) takes visitors back in time through the history of draughtsmanship. Prints from four centuries shed new light on the development of aesthetic perceptions from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century. They bear witness to the many different ways in which drawing skills have been developed by institutions as part and parcel of training, and illustrate the respective educational approaches involved.
