Claire Farago

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Examines Leonardo's claims, and the claims that others made about him, for painting and for natural philosophy, in his writings and his visual art Deals with modern mis-readings of sixteenth-century notions of style Argues in different ways and on the basis of different evidence, that the most sensitive area of investigation is the definition of what it means to be modern
