Over the course of his life, the scholarly collector Philippe de Chennevières had built up an enormous collection of 3,600 French drawings covering the period from 1500 to 1860. Over 500 of these works have been found by the authors, who take a closer look at what is known and what research has been conducted on this little-known collection.
