The Print Room of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences is the most valuable collection of old graphics in Poland. It allows you to duplicate the works of famous authors and to trace the development of graphics in Europe since the end of the fifteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century. It numbers over 98,000 prints. In the Print Room, there is also a small collection of more than 2,000 drawings and watercolours, among which stand out the works of Krzysztof Lubieniecki, Kajetan Wincenty Kielisiński, Juliusz Kossak, Julian Fałat and valuable landscapes by John Varley and John Webber, executed while travelling with James Cook. Also, an album of watercolours from the collection of Bogumił Gąsiorowski from the collection of Ambroży Grabowski is worthy of interest. The collection is stored in the Library of the Academy (Biblioteka Naukowa PAU i PAN w Krakowie, Cracow, Sławkowska Street).
