DE PICTURA LEONE BATTISTA ALBERTI PDF

De pictura by Leon Battista Alberti ? The book represents a definitive moment of cohesion between the two most conspicuous cultural developments of the early Renaissance, namely, humanism and the visual arts. This dissertation reconstructs the intellectual and visual environments in which Alberti moved before he entered Florence in the curia of Pope Eugenius IV in , one year before the recorded date of completion of De pictura. For the two decades prior to his arrival in Florence, from to , Alberti resided in Padua, Bologna, and Rome. Examination of specific textual and visual material in those cities - sources germane to Alberti's humanist and visual development, and thus to the ideas put forth in De pictura - has been insubstantial. This dissertation will therefore present an investigation into the sources available to Alberti in Padua, Bologna and Rome, and will argue that this material helped to shape the prescriptions in Alberti's canonical Renaissance tract.

De pictura by Leon Battista Alberti ? The book represents a definitive moment of cohesion between the two most conspicuous cultural developments of the early Renaissance, namely, humanism and the visual arts.

This dissertation reconstructs the intellectual and visual environments in which Alberti moved before he entered Florence in the curia of Pope Eugenius IV in , one year before the recorded date of completion of De pictura.

For the two decades prior to his arrival in Florence, from to , Alberti resided in Padua, Bologna, and Rome. Examination of specific textual and visual material in those cities - sources germane to Alberti's humanist and visual development, and thus to the ideas put forth in De pictura - has been insubstantial.

This dissertation will therefore present an investigation into the sources available to Alberti in Padua, Bologna and Rome, and will argue that this material helped to shape the prescriptions in Alberti's canonical Renaissance tract.

By more fully accounting for his intellectual and artistic progression before his arrival in Florence, this forensic reconstruction aims to fill a gap in our knowledge of Alberti's formative years and thereby underline impact of his early career upon his development as an art theorist.

Although he is often characterized exclusively as an architect, as James Beck has observed, [1] "to single out one of Leon Battista's 'fields' over others as somehow functionally independent and self-sufficient is of no help at all to any effort to characterize Alberti's extensive explorations in the fine arts. His two most important buildings are the churches of S. Sebastiano and S. Andrea, both in Mantua. Leon Battista Alberti was born in in Genoa. His mother is not known, and his father was a wealthy Florentine who had been exiled from his own city, allowed to return in Alberti was sent to boarding school in Padua, then studied Law at Bologna.
