An Impetuous Genius: Drawings by Jacopo Tintoretto

Celebrating the opening of Drawing in Tintoretto’s Venice, John Marciari, Charles W. Engelhard Curator of Drawings and Prints—and the curator of the exhibition—presents a new overview of Tintoretto’s work as a draftsman by exploring Tintoretto’s sources, the evolution of his drawing style, his use of drawings as part of his painting practice, and the practical necessities of training a large workshop, as well as the problems of studying Tintoretto as a draftsman.
