Libro de' Disegni
Filippino Lippi, Botticelli, and Raffaellino del Garbo
National Gallery of Art

The Libro de' Disegni (Italian for Book of Drawings) was a collection of drawings gathered, sorted and grouped by Giorgio Vasari whilst writing his Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects. By the time of his death in 1574 it is thought to have contained around 526 drawings, of which 162 are now in the Louvre and 83 in the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm[1]. There are also drawings from the Libro in the prints and drawings departments of the Uffizi, the British Museum, the Albertina, the National Gallery of Art and other institutions.

Origins and dispersal[edit]

Some art historians believe they were gathered to illustrate Vasari's Lives directly, as a visual index of the artists' works, whilst others believe it was a separate document in its own right. In his preface to the Lives, Vasari described his reasons for writing:

When I took on the task of writing about the life of the great artists ... I made a choice, which I have also explained, between what was good, what was better and what was perfect. I carefully pointed out the techniques, aspects, styles, particularities and fantasies of painters and sculptors. I also tried my best to reveal to those who did not succeed alone the causes and origins of different styles, and the ascending or descending curve followed by arts in different epoques and among different characters

No text reveals why Vasari compiled his collection of drawings, but it was probably to illustrate the styles of the different artists he wrote about and to show how he had divided them "into three parts, or rather let us call them periods, between the rebirth of the arts and our own time - each of these is distinguished from the others by manifest differences". The earliest drawing in the collection was by Cimabue and the latest dated to Vasari's own time. In the 1550 and 1568 editions of the Lives Vasari insisted on drawings as documents which allowed the viewer to perceive the maniera of the great masters of painting and mentioned when he owned one or two drawings by a particular artist, such as at the end of his life of Filippo Lippi: ("Fra Filippo drew very well, as one can see in my own Libro of the most famous painters, in the preparatory drawings for the altarpiece at Santo Spirito and the frescoes in the Prato chapel.") and in his life of Sandro Botticelli ("Sandro's drawings were of a totally unique excellence; and, after his death, more and more artists have been keen to have some of his drawings; and I myself, in my collection, have a few which were done with great care and judgement").

Giorgio Vasari was one of the founders of the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno set up in Florence by Cosimo I of Tuscany in 1563. He and the other founders wished to use this academy to promote artists above the status of artisans.[2][3] He was also a passionate collector of drawings and in his Libro he set them in his own paper frames and gathered drawings by one or more painters on a single sheet. In 1528 he received a collection of Lorenzo Ghiberti's drawings, as one of Ghiberti's descendents.[4]

After Vasari's death, the sheets of the Libro were initially bought in 1574 by the Florentine collector Niccolò Gaddi (1537-1591).[5] They were then sold by Gaddi's heirs before 18 May 1638, the date of death of Lorenzo Sabbatini, who had been put in charge of the Libro. They were then dispersed among the Medici, Arundel, Quesnel, Crozat and Mariette collections during the 17th and 18th centuries.

Louvre[edit]

The first drawings from the Libro de' Disegni to enter the French national collection were bought by Everhard Jabach, probably when the Arundel collections were sold in 1646 and 1654 after his and his widow's deaths.[7] They then passed from Jabach into Louis XIV's drawings collection in 1671. Further sheets from the Libro were added when the French royal collection bought part of the collection of Mariette in 1755 and when Saint-Morys's collection was seized by the revolutionary government in 1793. These later additions may have originated in the sale of the Crozat collection, for which a catalogue survives. Part of the Mariette collection was sold to the royal collection in 1775. Other pages entered the French national collection from émigré goods seized by the revolutionary government and via gift and purchase.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Vasari stated that Giovanni Paolo dal Borgo worked with him from 1546 on the Palazzo della Cancelleria (Giorgio Vasari, Les Vies des meilleurs peintres, sculpteurs et architectes, Book X, p.273 in the edition edited by André Chastel), then in the service of pope Paul III[8]. Nothing else is known about him or his life, though Umberto Gnoli suggests he can be identified with Giovanni Paolo di Cola dal Borgo and that theory was supported by Ricci due to the journal of Berto Alberti[9], which refers to the death of a painter named Giovanni Paolo del Colle on 19 September 1556. He was mentioned in the marriage register entry for his sister Lodovica di Francesco di Michelangelo dal Colle, dating to 29 November 1538 and showing he was born around 1518. A 1550 document published by Josephine von Henneberg links him to the decoration of the Parisiani chapel in San Marcello al Corso in Rome. He can also be seen assisting Vasari in painting the refectory of the Monteoliveto monastery in Naples, as cited in a 1545 letter from Vasari to Don Miniato Pitti[10]. Giovanni Paolo dal Borgo was one of the original painters of the Borgo San Sepolcro, known between 1542 and 1561 and a nephew of Raffaellino del Colle. Giovanni Paolo del Borgo was a member of Rome's guild of painters[11].
  2. ^ Serafino da Verona was probably Serafino Serafini (c. 1533, 1595/1605) who belonged to a family of painters from Verona. Most of his works are lost. He painted a fresco of ‘’The Virgin and Child with Saints Roch and Sebastian’’ on one of the gates of Castelvecchio. He is also known to have produced a ‘’Crucifixion with Saints’’ now held by the parish church in Zimella. Serafino da Verona is cited at the bottom of two pages from Vasari’s ‘’Libro’’.[12]
