Abstract

This article reconsiders the drawings of antiquities made by the Netherlandish artist Maarten van Heemskerck in Rome in the 1530s. It discusses the purpose of the drawings in the context of Van Heemskerck's Roman experience, paying particular attention to the artist's possible encounters with collectors, antiquarians and patrons.
