Ask anything

  • Lorenzo Boffadossi asked

    Dear Sir,
    I am writing in order to kindly ask you some information about a drawing by Tintoretto in the collection of Boijmans Museum (inv. I 398 PK). Is there any publication (after Tietze - Tietze Conrat 1944 [ed. 1979], p. 286, number 1673) or other inventory information that mentions this sheet?
    Thank you very much,
    Best regards,
    Lorenzo Boffadossi

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Lorenzo, Thank you for your question. I have passed it to our curator of drawings, Rosie Razall, and she writes the following: This drawing has been missing since WW2, is in the Pushkin Museum in Moscow where it is claimed by the State of the Netherlands. There is some information about it in:
    A.J. Elen, Missing Old Master Drawings from the Franz Koenigs Collection claimed by the State of the Netherlands, The Hague 1989, no. 397, and in: Five Centuries of European Drawings. The Former Collection of Franz Koenigs, exh. cat. Moscow (Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts), Milan 1995, p. 127, ill., p. 51, pl. I hope this answer is helpful. Kind regards, Els
