Spanish Old Master Drawings

With a career of more than 20 years, the gallery has become a referral for collecting Old Master drawings in the Spanish art’s market. The range of artists presented each year in our exhibitions is very extensive, always in the field of Spanish art, either Old Master or 19th century. Often, art historians have been repeating that in Spain there was no tradition to elaborate a drawing in the process of creating a painting. Incomprehensibly, most of international museums still keep on cataloguing Spanish drawings as Italian. However, in the last few years, there has been a continuous progress in the study of Spanish drawings and in the classification of the drawings of each artist.
