Drawings
Incoronation of Carlo Magno
Gian Francesco Penni, with Raffaello's autographic note
Incoronation of Carlo Magno

Fondazione Querini's collection of drawings is composed by 34 antique works attributed to the schools of Giovanni Bellini and Tiziano, as well as to Ludovico Carracci, Jacopo Tintoretto and Marco Ricci. These drawings were sent by Giulia Sudarovich to Giovanni Querini’s nephew in 1842.

In this collection, the Coronation of Carlo Magno by Gian Francesco Penni is the most renowned. It was previously attributed to Raffaello , of whom there is an original signature. This is probably a sketch for the fresco of the Coronation of the Emperor , commissioned by Leo X for the private rooms of the Pope where Raffaello painted the Cycle of the Liber Pontificalis. It is made with brown ink, watercolour and white lead and represents the Coronation of Charlemagne by Leo III on Christmas Eve in the year 800. The scene is modernized by the master through Renaissance architectural elements and clothes. Leo III resembles Leo X and Charlemagne is represented as Francis I.

The collection of drawings has been recently enhanced by private donations of 20th century drawings by the "capesarini" and by an interesting group of sketches for the restoration of the Querini Palace's ground floor by Carlo Scarpa dated back to the early 1960s.
