Summary "In Russia, active interest in the art of the European print developed in the course of the eighteenth century, and it was then that large scale collecting of impressions began. The Hermitage collection was formed mainly during the latter part of the eighteenth and the early years of the nineteenth century. The prevailing taste of the period favoured, above all others, works by the leading masters of the high Renaissance; these were regarded as models of artistic perfection, to be carefully studies and sedulously imitated.... The main aim of the book is to illustrate every aspect of the art of the print in fifteenth and sixteenth century Europe, while attempting, at the same time, to give an idea of the scope and content of the Hermitage collection"--Introduction.
