Catalogue Note

The coat-of-arms above the central niche of this funerary monument is that of a doge from the Venier family.  The monument for Francesco Venier (1554-1556) was executed by Jacopo Sansovino in San Salvatore, Venice and is very different from this project.It is possible that the present study dates from later in the sixteenth century, and related to another Venier doge, Sebastiano (1577-78).  If so, this project was never executed, as his existing monument in Santi Giovanni e Paolo does not correspond to the present drawing.  This type of architectural drawing is extremely rare, as very few have survived.
