A design for an organ case


RCIN 905495

In the upper pediment of the organ case is the shield of the Gonzaga, rulers of Mantua, and in the curved pediment is the personal device of Federico II Gonzaga. The drawing was probably commissioned from Peruzzi in Rome to be sent to Mantua, where the organ case would have been constructed from wood by local craftsmen. At the centre are Peruzzi’s notes on possible adjustments to the design. No. 15
