Pontormo and the Practice of Drawing in Sixteenth-Century Florence

Pontormo was an exceptional draftsman who shared with all Florentine artists the belief that drawing played a fundamental role in the creation of a work of art. For Pontormo, however, drawing was also a means of deeply personal expression. Tour the works in the exhibition Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters, and then join Giada Damen, Research Assistant to the Director, for an up-close exploration of drawings by Pontormo and his contemporaries from the Morgan collection.
