About: Sofía Sanabrais and Meha Priyadarshini

Sofía Sanabrais I am a current Getty Scholar and a Los Angeles-based art historian and curator who focuses on the cultural and artistic exchanges between Latin America and Asia from the colonial period to the present day. I am a lover of nature in all its various forms. I will be spending my spring and summer raising caterpillars, waiting for them to turn into chrysalises and then joyfully releasing them into the wild. I may even take a stab at adding praying mantises and carnivorous plants to my menagerie. Meha Priyadarshini I am a fellow at the Getty Research Institute in 2013–14 and just finished my PhD at the Department of History at Columbia University, New York.

      An Infrared reflectogram of a painting by Andrea Del Sarto reveals an architectural drawing beneath. Could it be a compositional underdrawing of a Pietro Perugino painting? 

      “What an odd discovery! It was one of those moments I’ll never forget. It’s humbling to realize how little we really know about major artists who worked so long ago, and a little glimpse such as this makes that all the more apparent.” —Getty Museum Drawings Curator Julian Brooks
