Alex Gordon Lecture in the History of Art. This lecture surveys the frequent appearance of sculpture in Florentine paintings in the decades before the rise of Andrea del Sarto and assesses the influence of sculpture on Florentine painting during the same period. It also explores the sculptures (both real and fictive) depicted in Andrea’s paintings as well as the models made for him, concluding with an examination of the extraordinary use of sculpture in the art of Jacopo Pontormo, Andrea’s pupil.
