Catalogue Note

Other anatomical studies by Figino are known, generally pages from albums. The largest corpus is in the Gallerie dell' Accademia in Venice where many anatomical studies with a Bossi-Celotti provenance are preserved; see Annalisa Perissa Torrini, Disegni del Figino, Venice, Gallerie dell' Accademia, Venice, 1987, nos 3-15. Occasionally, Figino combines anatomical observations with figure studies; see, for instance, a page from the Bossiano Album in the Gallerie dell'Accademia, inventory no. BV.1517, included in Roberto Paolo Ciardi, Giovan Ambrogio Figino, Florence, 1968, p. 163, no. 88, p. 264, reproduced.
