They also established a distinct tradition in Emilian drawing. The reaction against Mannerism in the late sixteenth century brought a new concern with natural appearance and psychological states. The artistic reform of the Carracci featured their systematic pursuit and conventional expression through life study. By the later seventeenth century, this had become a staple of academic training. The rendering of physiognomic expression was now an explicit artistic research, while imaginary studies were generally relegated to the new realm of caricature. Bolognese artists, however, upheld their early tradition. The school’s principal academic painter of the late eighteenth century, Gaetano Gandolfi, and his son Mauro made a specialty of the genre, transforming it into virtuoso performance for collectors. Gaetano’s studies of the kind are more dense in pattern, coherent in emotion, and regular in articulation. Mauro’s are distinguished by a greater detachment of one motif from another, flourishes about the perimeter, and prominent stipple in the modeling.

His very first public commission in Rome (1714) was an altarpiece of the Madonna of the Rosary for San Clemente. Its overwhelming success led to an immediate request for a pendant painting. This unpublished drawing is a compositional study for that second altarpiece. The elaboration of the study is so pictorial (and now properly legible following treatment to reverse the oxidation of its heightening) and the discrepancies between it and the painting are so minor -- not to mention the squaring of the design for transfer -- that is must have served as the model.

with Sebastiano Ricci, Giovanni Battista Piazzetta was responsible for revitalizing Venetian painting and inaugurating its second great age. Schooled in Bologna, Piazzetta learned a naturalism based upon systematic drawing, featuring intense chiaroscuro, and dedicated to dramatic expression. Reconciling this conception with the flickering light and personalized brushwork of his native tradition, while rejecting its bright palette and decorativeness, Piazzetta brought new life to the school’s tired formulae. Unlike many compatriots, he would rarely pursue monumental decoration and never work outside Venice. He did, however, bring to religious and genre subjects a force of visual sensation and human characterization equal to that of the early Baroque. This is a preparatory study for a painting of Saint John the Baptist at Rovigo. Drawn from a model, it demonstrates Piazzetta’s foundation in academic practice but inclination toward more selective description, varied touch, and sincere feeling. Indeed, this figure is especially present and powerful even for Piazzetta. It reveals at how early a stage the artist determined the eventual pose, chiaroscuro, and expression of the painting. Not least, this drawing predicts Piazzetta’s life-size chalk “heads of characters,” which would become the most celebrated and reproduced drawings in eighteenth-century Venice. The museum possesses two other drawings and two fine paintings by Piazzetta as well as numerous prints by his best interpreters.
