Although a leading architect of the Italian Renaissance, responsible for the Villa Farnesina and the Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, Baldassarre Peruzzi (1481–1536) has been an enigmatic figure, his career obscured by a paucity of biographical material, a limited number of surviving buildings and Giorgio Vasari’s undeservedly critical assessment of his work. In this richly illustrated study, Ann Huppert uses the neglected resource of Peruzzi’s autograph drawings to reveal the full scope and artistry of his work and its enduring influence.
