Drawn from the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, this book reproduces 87 key works by 27 artists that represent a broad panorama of the development of the graphic arts in Europe from the Renaissance to the dawn of the 20th century.

Entries on each of the works provide intimate glimpses into the creativity of some of the greatest artists of the times such as Dürer Melencolia I, 1514; Rembrandt Three trees, 1643; Watteau Study of three male figures, c. 1713–14; Fragonard Rinaldo in the gardens of Armida, c. 1761/64 and Gericault The Boxers, 1818.
