Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his discussion of painting Alberti writes of the process of vision, how the painter can present with his hand what he has understood with his mind, and the moral and artistic pre-requisites of the painter.

Synopsis:

Alberti`s "Della Pittura" was the first modern analytical study of painting. A systematic description of the one-point perspective construction, it was designed to persuade both patron and painter in the Renaissance to discard the old tastes in painting for the new.
