FROM STUDIO TO STUDIOLO: FLORENTINE DRAFTSMANSHIP UNDER THE FIRST MEDICI GRAND DUKES. Larry J. Feinberg and Karen-edis Barzman. Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College, 1991. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 212 pp. with 105 ills. (7 col.). 30 x 23 cm. LC 91-18170 ISBN 0295971452 In English.
Examining the methodologies and modes of expression reflected in late 16th-century Florentine art and the systematic approach to patronage adopted by the first Medici, this scholarly catalogue features full-page reproductions of 61 drawings selected from public and private American collections, including works by Pontormo, Bronzino, Vasari, Sarto and 16 other noted artists. Stylistic analyses of the drawings and biographies of the artists are prefaced by two substantial essays evaluating the impact of the Medici on the course of art in Florence, the prominent influence of Pontormo and Sarto, and the theory of disegno advanced during the period, especially by the Accademia del Disegno, the first incorporated artists' academy in Europe.
