This book is the fourth to be published in a series of volumes that will be the first complete scholarly catalogue of the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art--a collection of paintings, drawings, and decorative-arts objects that possesses in itself the breadth and quality of a major museum. The 116 Italian drawings analyzed and discussed in this volume are largely from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. They include an elaborate design for an equestrian monument by Antonio Pollaiuolo, a magnificent study of a bear by Leonardo da Vinci, a cartoon by Luca Signorelli, a study for a vault fresco by Taddeo Zuccaro, and a number of other drawings that are among the best Italian examples to have survived from this period.
