Les Enluminures has been selling important early drawings to both collectors and museums since 1991. These early works are becoming scarcer to source and so this is a very special exhibition of thirteen remarkable drawings which include sketches for compositions and fully worked drawings.

The gallery’s Dr Sandra Hindman sums it up: “There remains much to be learned from early drawings, and because of their increasing rarity, as well as intrinsic artistic interest, every example merits close attention and further study. Here is an uncommon opportunity for private collectors and institutions alike to acquire an Old Master drawing that documents an early moment in the history of drawing.”
