During the late sixteenth-century, successful Italian artist Federico Zuccaro (c.1541-1609) created one of the period's most important series of drawings - twenty large sheets that depict the early life of his older brother Taddeo (1529-1566).Published in full for the first time, the series shows the trials, tribulations, and eventual triumph of Taddeo as a young artist striving for success in Renaissance Rome. Not only do the drawings contain charming details of the life of a struggling artist, they are also full of insights into the life of Federico himself.Presenting the drawings and accompanying poems in their historical and artistic context, as well as providing a valuable insight into the world of the Renaissance artist, this will become a much loved volume for art fans everywhere.
