Following in the footsteps of such boldfaced names as Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael, Andrea del Sarto (1486–1530) changed Florentine painting by adding an element of realism that represented a marked departure from the sublime idealizations of the High Renaissance masters. The difference is especially notable in the artist’s drawings, 50 of which are exhibited here. Although hugely successful in his own time, del Sarto’s reputation was in decline by the 18th century, and has only been revived in the last half-century—a historical lapse that accounts for his obscurity. This show, the first monographic survey of the artist’s work, aims to put him back in the spotlight.
