POZZO, Andrea
(b. 1642, Trento, d. 1709, Wien)


Oil on canvas, 160 x 117 cm
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

Pozzo points to a preparatory painting on canvas for his illusionistic decoration of Rome's Church of Sant'Ignazio; the monochrome sketch emphasizes the realism of Pozzo's self-portrait, commissioned by Cosimo III.
