Information from the organizers, 30 March 2010
The core collection of drawings of the Flemish and Dutch schools originally belonging to the Milanese painter and collector Giuseppe Bossi (1777-1815) has been part of the original graphic arts collection in the Cabinet of Prints and Drawings of the Accademia Galleries since 1822. Although limited in number these holdings are of a particular significance, as they include drawings from the sixteenth to the seventeenth century by masters like Jan Gossaert, also called Mabuse, and Rembrandt van Rijn, and will now be exhibited at the Giorgio Franchetti gallery at Ca’ d’Oro in the rooms dedicated to paintings of the Dutch and Flemish schools from the permanent collection of the museum. The exhibition also features work by Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen, Paulus van Vianen, Jacob Jordaens, Frans Snyders, Bartholomeus Breenbergh, Pieter van Laer, called Bamboccio, Jacob Backer, Karel Dujardin and Barent Fabritius.
