Summary
"More than any other medium, drawings give a direct insight into how Italian Renaissance artists worked. This book charts the development of drawing in Italy from 1400, just prior to the emergence in Florence of the classically inspired naturalism of the Renaissance, to around 1510 when Michelangelo, Rapahel and Titian were on the verge of taking the innovations of earlier masters, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Pollaiuolo, in a new direction. It brings together just over a hundred of the most remarkable drawings from the collections of the Uffizi in Florence and the British Museum in London, most of which have never been seen together before. It features nearly fifty of the greatest artists, including Filippo and Filippino Lippi, Jacopo and Gentile Bellini, Botticelli, Mantegna, Verrocchio and Carpaccio." "The book highlights the vital part drawing played in artistic teaching and shows how artists studied the human body, often using life models, and the natural world. It also explores aspects of regional difference, the development of new drawing techniques with unprecedented expressive qualities, and classes of graphic work, from preparatory drawings to finished presentation pieces made to impress patrons." "The extended introduction focuses on how and why artists drew. An emphasis on the pivotal role of Leonardo demonstrates how the spontaneity of drawings brings us a closer understanding of his imagination. This is followed by a catalogue of drawings where discussion of their significance is supported by illustrations of related works, such as paintings. The results of new scientific investigation also reveal fresh insights into how the drawings were made."--BOOK JACKET
