There is an equally strong market for Old Master works on paper, including drawings and prints, but the main market focus is still paintings.
Old Masters is the blanket term for works by the highest echelon of European artists that were produced circa 1300-1800. Artists were extensively trained in the professional workshops of other artists, often working with family members, and were highly dependent upon individual patrons to commission works. (This is in contrast to today’s gallery network of artist promotion!) During this long period, the strongest regional movements were consistently in Italy, and in what is now the Netherlands.
