Dubrovnik, the Duke’s Palace, July-August 2001
The exhibition was a follow-up to the one staged in February 2000, when 43 graphic sheets were exhibited from a rich and valuable collection of the Dubrovnik Museums, dating from the 16th to the 20th century.
For this occasion 10 sheets were selected, made in the renowned Italian workshops from the 16th to the 18th century. Their various themes – from religious to allegorical and historical -were made after the works of renowned painters such as Pietro Testa, Antonio Feda, Girolamo Rossi, Giacinto Brandi and printed in the workshops of Rome and Venice. The group of engravings exhibited once belonged to the collection of the Dubrovnik family Pucić-Natalić.
Conservation work on the engravings was carried out by the Dubrovnik Conservation Department of the Croatian Conservation Institute. The exhibition was organized in cooperation with the Dubrovnik Museums.
