Roman Drawings before 1800 is the seventh in a series of catalogues of drawings from the collection of the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Statens Museum For Kunst, Copenhagen.

For more than 200 years – from c. 1520 to c. 1750 – the Popes and their court made Rome the unchallenged centre of artistic activity in Europe. The generally rapid succession of the Popes and their preference for employing artists from their own native towns created a discontinuity in patronage. On the one side this inhibited the development of a consistent local school, on the other it promoted an exceptional variety of artistic expression which is well illustrated in this catalogue.

It presents a large number of works spanning four centuries including drawings by Maratti, Raphael and Zuccari. Each catalogue entry is fully illustrated, complete with a bibliography, provenance and a comprehensive description. History of the collection by Christ Fischer with Jens Heinet Knudsen and Jesper Svenningsen. Contains a list of catalogue numbers, inventory numbers and present and former collocation numbers.
