This drawing, Saint with Drapery, is most likely from the school of Donato Bramante, an Italian Renaissance architect, painter, and engineer. Although it is uncertain who actually created this work, its style is reminiscent of other works by Bramante. Although few of his architectural designs were ever realized, Bramante is considered one of the fathers of High Renaissance architecture. His early career was marked by numerous frescoes, often for noble patrons. These frescoes, while architectural in nature, incorporated allegorical figures, much like Saint with Drapery, into the spaces. It was ultimately a series of projects initiated towards the end of his life in Rome which made Bramante famous. He drew up plans for an extension to the Vatican Palace as well as plans to rebuild St. Peter’s, which later formed the basis of the design executed by Michelangelo. Bramante’s vision in these designs is considered a significant inspiration for future High Renaissance architecture, providing a new sense of dignity and majesty.
