Cabinet des Estampes et des Dessins, Strasbourg

The Cabinet des Stamps et des Dessins is a fascinating museum to visit. You will find it on the Place du Chateau not far from the Strasbourg Cathedral.

This small museum (the Gallery of Prints and Drawings) was founded during Wilhelm von Bode’s rebuilding and relocation of the Strasbourg museums in 1890. It is dedicated to drawings, engravings, woodcuts and lithographies from the 14th to the 19th centuries.

The collection is magnificent and comprises over 200,000 items, including Antonio Pollainolo’s 15th century engraving of “La Combat des Hommes Nus” (Battle of Naked Men).

Several works by Albrecht Dürer are on display a 15th century woodcut of Saint Michael killing a dragon and a copper engraving dating back to 1513 called “Le Chevalier, la Mort et le Diable” (The Knight, Death and the Devil).

Other marvelous works are by Augustin Hirschvogel, Heinrich Aldegrever and Rembrandt. The pride of the collection is the beautiful and rare 15th century engraved mask by Maso Finiguerra.

You can admire over 300 items delicately executed and engraved by 16th and 17th century goldsmiths. In another room of the museum is a fine private collection of coins and medals. There is also a collection of original architectural designs.
