“Seventy-nine masterpieces of Renaissance drawing, including a number of rarely seen works, are on view in a new exhibition at The Morgan Library & Museum entitled, Michelangelo, Vasari, and Their Contemporaries: Drawings from the Uffizi. The show focuses on artists who worked on the frescoes, paintings, tapestries, and other decorative work that embellished the magnificent Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, best known as the home of the Medici dukes. Included in the show are sheets by Michelangelo, Pontormo, and Vasari, as well as mannerists such as Bronzino and Allori.”
