He moved to Rome in 1537, where he became a pupil of Michelangelo. Della Porta frequently carved reliefs, and the present work could be a composition sketch for one of these.

ROME, SECOND HALF 16TH CENTURY (c.1490-1577) - WORKSHOP OF GUGLIELMO DELLA PORTA (C.1515-1577), AFTER MODELS BY WILLEM VAN TETRODE (C.1525-1580) A PAIR OF BRONZE BUSTS OF JULIUS CAESAR AND VESPASIAN -

CATALOGUE NOTE
These busts are cast from models belonging to a series of twelve emperors conceived by Tetrode in Rome in the mid-sixteenth century. They were modelled circa 1559, when Tetrode received his first independent commission to decorate a cabinet for Niccolí² IV Orsini, count of Pitigliano. The Pitigliano cabinet mounted bronze reductions of the most celebrated antiquities of Rome, including a set of twelve emperors. Tetrode, whose work was heavily influenced by classical sculpture, based his busts on marble models by della Porta, in whose workshop and foundry he was employed in the 1550's. The moulds probably remained there, for an inventory drawn up after della Porta's death, in 1578, refers to forme de duodeci imperatori picchole. That further casts were made after Tetrode's departure, differing slightly in facture and finish, is therefore quite likely.. . The Pitigliano cabinet, which passed into the possession of Grand Duke Cosimo I of Tuscany soon after its completion, is now lost but the original bronzes, including the busts, survived and are now in the Uffizi, Florence. The mannerist cartouches bearing the names on the present bronzes, cast and attached separately, differ to the originals which replicate the standard double-scroll name plates common to antiquity.. . RELATED LITERATURE. Scholten (2003), pp.24-5, ills.19-22; Lanciani, p.265

Lot Notes
Giorgio Vasari's first mention of Guglielmo della Porta in his Life of the artist written in 1567 states that in 1530 he was in Milan copying works by Leonardo da Vinci. In 1534 della Porta was called to Genoa to work with his uncle Gian Giacomo. There he executed a number of independent sculptures and at the same time worked as stuccatore with Perino del Vaga. The latter exerted an important influence on the young artist, particularly on his drawing style. As with Perino (see lot 10), Guglielmo's favourite technique is pen and ink without wash. He draws, according to Bernice Davidson 'multiple delicate and elongated figures in a dry and agitated line formed with complex nods and cuts like a razor' (Mostra di disegni di Perino del Vaga e sua cerchia, exhib. cat., Florence, Uffizi, 1976, under no. 79). A similarly early sheet close in style and depicting elaborate helmet studies is in the Uffizi (B. Davidson, op. cit., no. 79, fig. 69). Two late albums relating to the commissions of Pope Paul III are in Düsseldorf (W. Gramberg, Die Düsseldorfer Skizzenbücher des Guglielmo della Porta, Berlin, 1964).
Vasari dates della Porta's departure for Rome to 1537 and adds that through his uncle he met Michelangelo. The latter, who befriended the young artist, obtained for him a post restoring the Farnese collection of antique sculpture which included the newly discovered Farnese Hercules. He was then recommended to Pope Paul III Farnese, who commissioned bronzes and marble busts from him. In 1547, at the death of Sebastiano del Piombo, della Porta took over his office as keeper of the seal (piombo) of the Papal bulls. His only commission thereafter is the tomb of Paul III, finished in 1575 and moved in 1629 to the choir of Saint Peter's in Rome.
Franz Ritter von Hauslab (1798-1883), who owned this drawing, collected military prints, ornament books and scientific works. He was the son of a drawing teacher in Vienna and was himself a Field-Marshal and director of the artillery. He was private tutor to the Emperor Franz Joseph.
