Anselm Feuerbach: Study of a Clothed Seated Woman. Drawing with white highlights on tinted paper, undated (excerpt).

The Graphic Art Collection boasts a collection of works by Nuremberg artists that is unusual in its completeness. Engravings, woodcuts, etchings, lithographs and water colors, gouaches, and drawings have been systematically collected. The stock amassed over the years documents the graphic works of Nuremberg artists from the late sixteenth century up until the present day.

The collection features a nearly complete body of prints by important copperplate engravers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, including Johann Alexander Boener and Johann Adam Delsenbach, as well as etchings by nineteenth-century artists like Johann Adam Klein and Johann Christoph Erhard. There are also substantial portfolios of works by the brothers Georg Christoph and Johann Christoph Jakob Wilder. Nuremberg art of the late nineteenth and the twentieth century is also well represented.
