John Marcieri lecture: From Natural to Artificial and Back Again

Focusing on the Renaissance and Baroque drawings in the Thaw Collection, including examples by Pisanello, Mantegna, Fra Bartolommeo, Altdorfer, Claude Lorrain, Rubens, and Rembrandt, this lecture given by John Marcieri, Charles W. Engelhard Curator and Head of the Department of Drawings and Prints at the Morgan Library & Museum, traces the shift from model-book to sketch-book drawing in the early Renaissance; the development of new kinds of autonomous drawings and the mannered style often associated with them in the sixteenth century; and the revival of naturalism in the seventeenth century.
