About this item

The author examines the meaning of technical indications of 16th century treatises on artistic practice in Italy, focusing on Leonardo da Vinci's works, Giovan Battista Armenini's De' veri precetti della pittura, Giorgio Vasari's Introduzzione alle Arti, and the works of Raffaello Borghini and Giovan Paolo Lomazzo. She discusses the context of these texts and earlier studies; core topics in the theory of art of the 16th century and their connection to the practice of art; analysis of texts and the reconstruction of painting processes, the scientifically accurate identification of materials, and references to literature on the subject; and key examples, such as the Madonna del Divino Amore, Madonna della gatta, Calvary, Holy Family, and the paintings of Sebastiano del Piombo.
