More information

Following an international conference dedicated to red chalk drawings held at the Netherlands Interuniversity Institute for Art History in Florence (which has generated a volume of studies), the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe of Castello Sforzesco in Milan, in collaboration with the Netherlands Interuniversity Institute for Art History in Florence, has organised a noteworthy exhibition featuring the most important red chalk drawings preserved in the Print Room of Castello Sforzesco. This initiative involved Italian and Dutch scholars and students in drafting essays and catalogue entries for the selected works.
