FACSIMILE MODEL BOOK OF GIOVANNINO DE GRASSI Giovannino de Grassi (1350-1399)
This model book was created by painter, sculptor, and architect Giovannino de Grassi in Milan in the late 14th century. Model books were indispensable to the artist’s workshop as guides to ornamental elements, calligraphic initials, animals, and the human body in various poses and at specific activities. De Grassi’s model book is known for his Gothic alphabet, consisting of human and animal figures. All model books influenced the stylistic evolution of art. This one influenced the development of script. De Grassi was a pioneer in Italian art at the beginning of the Renaissance.
