The Gabinetto delle Stampa, Instituto Nazionale per la Grafica at the Villa Farnesina and the drawing collection of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca possess a treasure of drawings made in seventeenth-century Rome and are a rich taxonomical catalog of Baroque mark making. Rome in the Baroque era was a melting pot of local and foreign artists making for an international aesthetic of averages. However, the drawings in the Villa Farnesina and the Accademia offer a view into the highly individualized, often localized, approaches to drawing. My own artistic practice is based on studying averages and differences in the tropes of visual art. In these archives, I would study the multilayered definitions of what Baroque drawing is by examining its same and different forms, making drawings from the experience, and assembling a kind of visual atlas of Baroque drawing tropes.
