'A Drawing Cabinet Unlocked: Old Masters from UCL Art Collections'

This exhibition features a selection of UCL's important holdings of 16th- and 17th-century drawings. Bequeathed by the politician and scholar George Grote in 1872, the collection was probably put together in 17th-century Holland, and contains works by artists such as Leonhard Beck, Hans Burgkmair, Georg Pencz, Wolfgang Huber, Wenceslaus Hollar, Joseph Heintz and the Holbein workshop. The diverse range of subjects include portraits, costume designs, landscapes and architectural studies.
