The main aim of this essay is the publication of the first catalogue raisonné of Ambrogio Besozzi’s drawings by following a rigorous method of classification which, in addition, implies where possible the reconsideration of their certain attribution to our Artist. The search starts with a letter sent by Father Sebastiano Resta to Lanzani; such a letter is written on the verso of a red chalk sketch showing The Cast in Bronze Serpent preserved at the Ambrosiana Library and wrongly attributed to Besozzi. Some relationships between Father Resta and Andrea Lanzani and then between Lanzani and Carlo Maratti are clearly inferred from the letter in which Besozzi and Federico Maccagno themselves are also mentioned. The four pen sketches on white paper of Warsaw’s Bonola Code, eight drawings of both profane and sacred subject at the Ambrosiana Library and a small charcoal portrait belonging to the Malaspina Gallery in Pavia are, with no doubt, attributable to our Milanese Artist. Other drawings at the Ambrosiana Library, once believed Besozzi’s own works, are now rejected from his corpus. Finally this essay mentions some Besozzi’s graphic works which are hard to be traced, that is, four drawings sold by auction in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and several preparatory studies for prints and engravings.
