Coming from a family of goldsmiths, Filippo Juvarra studied classic architectural treatises in his youth and moved towards this field as well as scenography; his first projects date back to shortly before his arrival in Rome in 1704. Advised by Carlo Fontana, he studied the architecture of Michelangelo, and developed a passion for the works of Bernini and Borromini. He is particularly known for having been the architect of the Basilica of Superga (1717-1731) in Turin.
Our drawing is characteristic of his Roman period where he was active between 1704 and 1714. His pen, as nervous as it is precise, perfectly conveys the movement and spatial dynamism of the Baroque aesthetic.
