Art HistoryIn 1880, Cornelius Vanderbilt presented to the Metropolitan Museum 670 drawings by or attributed to European old masters, but it was not until 1960 that the Department of Drawings was established as a separate curatorial area of the Museum. During the next 30 years, the department's holdings nearly doubled in size; the collection is known particularly for its works by Italian and French artists of the fifteenth through the nineteenth century. The Department of Prints was established in 1916 and developed rapidly into one of the world's most encyclopedic repositories of printed images. It is rich in fifteenth-century German, eighteenth-century Italian, and nineteenth-century French images, as well as more than twelve thousand illustrated books and a comprehensive collection of designs for architecture and the decorative arts. The combined Department of Drawings and Prints was created in 1993.
