The catalogue of 224 drawings and prints is edited by Benjamin Couilleaux and includes twenty-four drawings by Albrecht Dürer, as well as eight sheets by Rembrandt, seven by Peter Paul Rubens, four by Anthony van Dyck and two by Jacob Jordaens. In addition, this edition also includes work by Hans Baldung Grien, Adolf von Menzel, Abraham Bloemaert, Adriaen van Ostade, Jan van Goyen and many others.
