Museo Correr, Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe
The Gabinetto disegni e stampe is recognised as one of the most important institutions in the world for the study of the Venetian graphic arts. It owns 8,000 drawings and over 40,000 prints, dating from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. The birth of the collection dates back to 1830, with the bequest of Teodoro Correr (1750-1830). However, the Gabinetto has been continuously enriched through the centuries, with a focus on eighteenth-century Venice, with artists like Canaletto, Domenico Lovisa, Michele Marieschi, Pietro Monaco, and Anton Maria Zanetti. The Gabinetto also owns a very important corpus of over 1,000 drawings of Venetian architecture (from the Baroque to the Neoclassicism), with authors such as Vincenzo Scamozzi, Antonio Gaspari, Baldassare Longhena, Giacomo Quarenghi, and Giannantonio Selva and the most important graphic collection of seventeenth- to nineteenth- century regata boats.
