Cammy Brothers specializes in Italian Renaissance and Mediterranean Architecture. Her prizewinning book, Michelangelo, Drawing, and the Invention of Architecture (Yale University Press, 2008) argues that Michelangelo’s architectural drawings are best understood in terms of his experience as a painter and sculptor. It explores the idea of drawing as a mode of thinking, using its evidence to reconstruct the process by which Michelangelo arrived at new ideas. She is currently completing a book on Giuliano da Sangallo and the Ruins of Rome, and working on another about architectural exchange between Italy and Andalusia.
