This book, produced in conjunction with a traveling exhibition, offers a wealth of original research into many rarely seen and unpublished works by such famed artists as Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, Jacopo Palma il Giovane, Parmigianino, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Pietro Testa, and Giambattista Tiepolo. The entries, by Robert Randolf Coleman and Babette Bohn, draw on a wide range of primary source material and include a sensitive discussion of both artist and object, accompanied by color illustrations and numerous comparative examples. In addition, the lively introduction by Giancarlo Fiorenza, Pierre Daura Curator of European Art at the Georgia Museum of Art, outlines the theory and practice of disegno (drawing) in artists' workshops and academies.
