NEW YORK (AP) - An upcoming New York City exhibition looks at the work of a leading 16th century Florentine artist.

“Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action” comes to the Frick Collection on Oct. 7 and runs through Jan. 10.

It highlights the prolific work of an artist collected by the Medici family and other royalty and whose peers included Michelangelo and Raphael.

It’s the first major monographic exhibition in the United States on the artist.

It features three paintings and 50 compositional drawings and figure studies he created in red and black chalk in developing his portraits and fresco paintings.



They are on loan from the Uffizi Gallery Museum in Florence and other collections.

The show was first shown this summer at the J. Paul Gerry Museum in Los Angeles.
