Botticelli Drawings is the first book to examine all of Sandro Botticelli’s known drawings—an area of his body of work that has not been deeply explored due, in part, to the artist’s few surviving works in this medium. Along with gathering these objects together in one substantial volume, the publication also showcases new findings by the project’s curator, Furio Rinaldi, including the discovery of three previously unrecognized works by Botticelli. Scholarly essays examine the essential role that drawings played in the artist’s process, the greater Florentine artistic culture in which he worked, views into his elusive biography through excavation of his artworks, and new technical analyses of his underdrawings. Printed on a matte-like paper, with details of Botticelli’s drawings on the case and front and back of the jacket, this book is intended to offer readers an experience akin to paging through a selection of the artist’s sketches. Hardcover, 320 pages.
