In the early 1530s Domenico Campagnola started to make drawings - mostly of panoramic landscapes - to be sold as autonomous works of art, mounted and framed under glass. This revolutionary step endowed drawing with a new character. This rupture of the umbilical cord that tied drawing to painting was a substantially Venetian achievement.
