THE COLLECTION

Works on Paper

Here you can view highlights from the Barber's fine collection of works on paper.

There are now over a thousand drawings and prints in the Barber's collection, covering six centuries of the draughtsman’s and printmaker’s art. There is a small but very fine selection of old master drawings with magnificent sheets by Dürer, Ingres, Rembrandt, Pietro da Cortona and Turner, along with more recent works by Degas.
