The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has published a complete catalogue of Early Netherlandish, Dutch and Flemish drawings.

From the museum website, 25 November 2014

The V&A’s internationally important collection of Dutch and Flemish masterpiece drawings includes individual works by Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyck, as well as extensive albums of drawings by Jan de Bisschop, Anton Mauve and Anton van den Wyngaerde. Comprising 800 sheets made over 500 years, it includes designs for tapestries, stained glass and prints – as well as portraits, landscapes, genre scenes and topographical panoramas.

This two-volume definitive catalogue illustrates and discusses every work in the collection. Written by renowned authorities in the field, it includes details of watermarks, comparative works, comprehensive indices and a history of Dutch and Flemish drawing at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
