The Early Life of Taddeo
Taddeo in the Belvedere Court in the Vatican, Drawing the Laoco÷n


Taddeo sits behind the Vatican sketching some the most famous ancient Roman statues, Laocoön and His Sons and the Apollo Belvedere (both still in the Vatican). In the background, the apartments of the pope—famously frescoed by Raphael—annotated le camere di Rafaello (the rooms of Raphael). This drawing is typical of the series in its vivid evocation of Renaissance Rome and the artistic wonders that inspired young artists.

audio Artist Peter Zokosky comments on the importance of drawing to an artist's education.
