Italian Renaissance Drawings
Technical Examination and Analysis
Editors Janet AmbersCatherine HiggittDavid Saunders
The drawings discussed in this book, published in association with the British Museum, were included in the exhibition, Fra Angelico to Leonardo: Italian Renaissance Drawings, held at the British Museum, London and the Uffizi Gallery, Florence in 2010-2011. Technical studies of 47 of the British Museum's finest Italian Renaissance drawings are given based on non-invasive and non-contact examination and analysis. Great emphasis has been placed on how the results from such examination and analysis can be interpreted in a manner that goes beyond simply determining the materials employed by artists, to draw conclusions about their role in the Renaissance workshop and the patterns of use across fifteenth-century Italy.
