Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action

This richly-illustrated book was published on the occasion of the 2015/6 exhibition Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles and at the Frick Collection, New York.

The great Renaissance artist, Andrea del Sarto (1486–1530), rivals Leonardo da Vinci as one of history’s most accomplished draftsmen. He brought unprecedented realism to his drawings in his life and compositional studies. 

This book reveals del Sarto's inventiveness and creative process, presenting fifty core drawings on paper together with a handful of paintings. It is the first publication to look to del Sarto’s working practice through a close examination of his art from across all the world’s major collections.
