Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action
June 23–September 13, 2015

This major loan exhibition celebrates the transformation of the art of drawing by Andrea del Sarto (1486–1530), one of the greatest Florentine Renaissance artists. Moving beyond the graceful harmony and elegance of his elders and peers, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Fra Bartolommeo, Sarto brought unprecedented realism and immediacy to his art through the rough and rustic use of red chalk and the creation of powerful life and compositional studies. Comprising rare drawings and panel paintings from key international collections, the exhibition fully illuminates Andrea del Sarto's inventiveness, creative process, and workshop practice.
