ISABELLA STEWART GARDNER MUSEUM 25 Evans Way, Boston, MA Information (617) 566 1401 Box Office (617) 278 5156 www.GardnerMuseum, org DONATELLO, MICHELANGELO, CELLINI: SCULPTORS' DRAWINGS FROM RENAISSANCE ITALY - Now through January 19, 2015. This groundbreaking exhibition examines the multifaceted relationship be- tween drawing and sculpture in Re- naissance Italy. Because sculptors worked primarily from preparatory models in wax or clay, drawing was not an essential part of their working practice. And yet, in his self-portrait now in the Gardner Museum's collec- tion, the prominent Florentine sculp- tor Baccio Bandinelli points not to his most famous public monument, but rather to a drawing of it. The surpris- ing gesture raises many questions about when, why, and how Renais- sance sculptors drew, and provides clues about their training and their ambitions. Come and explore works by several Italian masters, many be- ing exhibited for the first time in the United States. W
