The first of three volumes of the drawings by the Italian architect Antonio da Sangallo the Younger (1484-1546) and his circle brings to light the archive of one of the most productive architectural teams in early modern Europe. These drawings (some 1200 in all) reveal much about the planning process in this extraordinary period of architectural invention. Moreover, they demonstrate the full range of interests of the Sangallo circle, from machinery and construction technology to the ruins of ancient Rome. Antonio da Sangallo the Younger is a key figure in the history of Italian 16th-century architecture. Active on the major building sites of his day, he and his workshop were involved in major church projects (St. Peter's, Rome), palaces (Palzzazo Farnese, Rome) and villas (Villa Madama, Rome). They were also responsible for fortification projects (Castro, Florence, Perugia, Rome) as well as dozens of other secular and religious buildings throughout Italy. Their drawing archive is now located in the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe of the Uffizi in Florence. Volume II covers churches, and Volume III covers palaces and the antique. Scholars in the field have written complete catalogue entries for each drawing.
