With Dr Rachel Boyd, Getty Paper Project Research Fellow at the Ashmolean
Guercino (1591–1666) was one of the most talented painters of Baroque Italy. A prolific and versatile draughtsman, he used paper, pen, ink, and chalks to explore compositional ideas, to study the human body, and to draw charming genre scenes and caricatures. The Ashmolean holds an exceptional collection of over 80 drawings by Guercino and his school. This talk will introduce you to Guercino’s work on paper, focusing on a selection of drawings spanning nearly his entire career.
