Architectural and ornament drawings: Juvarra, Vanvitelli, the Bibiena family, & other Italian draughtsmen

New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1975
(28 cm), 56 pp., [88] p. of black & white plates. 84 catalogue entries. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. - The drawings exhibited (all from collections in the MMA) include designs for stage sets, furniture, silver, architecture, and other forms of applied art. “This meticulously prepared catalogue is a worthy record of an excellent show. It will maintain its value for a long time as the major source of information about the Italian 18th-century drawings in the collection of the Print Department of the Metropolitan Museum” (from a review by Hellmut Hager, in Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, volume 36, 1977, pp.211-212). ¶ Very good copy.
