Andrea Del Sarto is one of my favorite Renaissance Artists, I love his paintings and I am in awe of his drawings. His style is incredibly sophisticated and copying his work is both very satisfying and a great teaching experience. Del Sarto was only 44 when he died, I cannot stop thinking how many more artworks he could have gifted us with, not better, just more, because I don’t think his work could get any better.
Join me, on Tuesday 21, for another session of “Drawing with…” to study and enjoy this sublime artist.
