About this artwork

Dorothy Edinburg’s German drawings demonstrate the long tradition of Northern artists working in Italy, from the late 15th century, with Albrecht Dürer’s discoveries, to the 19th century, when many German Romantics moved to Rome permanently. Another entry to this tradition, Johann Christophorus Storer was a leading artist in Lombardy in the mid-17th century when he executed this drawing of the coronation of Otto the Great, the first Holy Roman Emperor (r. 962–73), who brought Italy and Burgundy under German control.
