Andrea del Sarto

World

Sydney J. Freedberg presents an interpretive analysis and a full Catalogue Raisonné of Andrea del Sarto’s achievement. The interpretive work includes an account of Andrea’s career as a painter, illustrations of all his authentic paintings and many of his drawings, a brief biography, and a selective bibliography. The painter’s style and its place in the history of Italian painting are discussed in detail. The author questions current concepts of a sudden “triumph of Mannerism” in Florence after 1520 and presents a more balanced interpretation of this era.

The Catalogue Raisonné includes a complete critical catalogue of Andrea’s paintings and drawings, an inventory of lost works, and a full account of paintings and drawings attributed to the artist. Documentary information on Andrea’s life and the details of dating and attribution which are the basis for the interpretive text are also included. The illustrations in this volume supplement those in the interpretive work and will be of particular interest to scholars and art historians.
