Giuliano da Sangallo 1516-2016
Study Day

Florence, Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut,
Palazzo Grifoni Budini Gattai, Via dei Servi 51, November 17 – 18, 2016

The 500th anniversary of the death of Giuliano da Sangallo offers the opportunity to examine the ambivalent reception of the artist’s work.
Indeed, although he was a crucial figure in the architectural panorama of his time, Giuliano’s output and personality remain elusive. His
fragmentary and sometimes misunderstood oeuvre has often been described as caught between two styles and two eras, the Florentine Quattrocento
and the Roman High Renaissance. Only recently have almost all his architectural works been examined in their complexity and completeness
as the subject of a monograph (FROMMEL 2014), a publication that provides a stimulus for further research on the under-examined aspects
of his multifaceted production.

Giuliano’s training as legnaiuolo, for example, sheds light both on the specificity of Florentine architectural culture and on this artist’s
own design methods, in which architectural models played an important role. Similarly, his corpus of drawings and the technical
characteristics of their execution offer an alternative understanding of the “evolution” of representational conventions over the course of
the Renaissance, one which challenges the traditional history of an improbable linear progress in this field.

Furthermore, Giuliano da Sangallo’s interactions with and responses to his contemporaries are still to be explored. The overlaps and
continuities within his large family of sculptors and architects – starting with his brother Antonio the Elder and ending with his son,
Francesco, in Florence, and his nephew Antonio the Younger in Rome – also invite further research. In particular, the techniques,
morphologies, and evolution of the fortifications that have been attributed to Giuliano and Antonio the Elder offer a wealth of
possibilities for further study. Their catalogue of military architecture is as broad as it is unexplored, and spans a time frame of
almost half a century.

Moreover, the drawing practices of the workshop strongly attest to the artists’ interweaving of figurative imagery and architectural
inventions. The variety of genres explored by this polymorphic workshop has not yet been investigated from a broad perspective, one that
considers sculpture alongside painting and decorative arts alongside large-scale architecture.

The study day, organized by Sabine Frommel, Dario Donetti and Alessandro Nova, to be held 17-18 November 2016 at the
Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut, will present innovative and unpublished contributions on Giuliano da
Sangallo, thus offering a new perspective on both Tuscan and Roman architecture between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
