Drawing with... Pontormo!

An ongoing show at the MET is honoring the Mannerists, a group of artists active in Italy in the 16th century, between the high Renaissance and the Baroque.

Jacopo Carrucci, aka Pontormo, is one of my favorite artists of this short lived yet revolutionary period.

During this 2:30 hours online session, we will copy and study a few drawings by Jacopo da Pontormo, appreciating his uniquely expressive style, full of pathos and dynamism, a great way to prepare for a visit to the MET, where you can find some of his original works exhibited.

My Video Courses

Roberto Osti

These two online classes are available at my Vimeo Channel.
  • In my class Drawing the Torso, I discuss the structural, volumetric and anatomical characteristics of the male torso.
  • In Drawing the Eye, you will acquire a comprehensive knowledge of the structure, anatomy and dynamism of the eye's form.
These videos are designed so that you can draw along with me and learn as you go. As I draw, you can copy what i do, you can stop the video in case you need to and take your time, restart the video and resume drawing. This way, you will have ample time to practice drawing and understand the anatomical characteristics of the human body.
