Linda Wolk-Simon: "A Tale of Two Artists: Andrea del Sarto & Raphael"
Linda Wolk-Simon, University Museums, Fairfield University. Despite their divergent biographies, Andrea del Sarto and Raphael shared substantive similarities: both were adept at frescoes, altarpieces, devotional images, and portraits; both had talented pupils who became leading protagonists of the maniera; and both were supremely fluent draftsmen who developed a comparably elaborate preparatory process. Such intersections are the topic of this lecture.
