About this title

Synopsis:

Energetic, incisive, spontaneous, and expressive, the drawings of Filippino Lippi (1457/58-1504) are among the most original and creative of the Italian Renaissance.

This book accompanies a major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the first important show devoted to the drawings of Filippino Lippi. Essays by experts in the field explore Filippino's development as a draftsman, his techniques, his designs for the decorative arts, his drawings after the antique, and his work as a painter; entries on the individual drawings consider issues of authenticity, dating, and relationship to paintings, as well as the contributions of his circle. A documented chronology of the artist's life is offered as well. Written for both a scholarly and general audience, the volume is lavishly supported with color reproductions of all the works included in the exhibition, which are shown to scale when possible, numerous comparative illustrations, and over forty color-plates reproducing Filippino's most important paintings. Provenances, complete references, an extensive bibliography, and an index are provided.
