Abstract

Traces the history of the collection of antique sculptures owned by the De' Rossi family in Renaissance Rome, with reference to newly-published archival documents. A full inventory of the collection made in 1517, transcribed here, makes this the first well-documented collection of antique marbles in Italy. A conflict that arose between the de' Rossi family, Raphael, and Pope Leo X over who could claim ownership of the antiquities is analyzed.
