Footnotes

  • Two of the three drawings have been identified with frescoes in the Planetary Rooms of the Pitti Palace. One is a detail from the ceiling fresco in the Sala di Giove and the other depicts a scene from the life of Lycurgus in the Sala di Saturno. This last room was painted by Ciro Ferri (1634-1689), chief pupil of da Cortona.
