A selection of Leonardo da Vinci's writings on painting. Martin Kemp and Margaret Walker have edited material not only from his so-called "Treatise on Painting" but also from his surviving manuscripts and from other primary sources.


Martin Kemp is professor of the history of art at Oxford University. His publications include Leonardo da Vinci: The Marvellous Works of Nature and Man, Behind the Picture: Art and Evidence in the Italian Renaissance (ISBN 0 300 07195 7, 27.50), and The Science of Art: Optical Themes in Western Art from Brunelleschi to Seurat (ISBN 0 300 05241 3, pb. 30.00). Margaret Walker lectures on Renaissance art and reviews books for Burlington Magazine.


"Highly recommended" Apollo Magazine "Highly readable... Also included are documentary sources and letters illuminating Leonardo's career; the manuscript sources for all of Leonardo's statements are fully cited in the notes. The volume is skillfully translated and is illustrated with appropriate examples of drawings and paintings by the artist." Choice "Easier to read and more convenient than previous compilations." Charles Hope, New York Review of Books "A chaotic assemblage of Leonardo da Vinci's writings appeared in 1651 as Treatise on Painting... Kemp successfully applies order to the chaos." ArtNews
