The genius of Leonardo da Vinci; Leonardo da Vinci on art and the artist by Leonardo( Book )

8 editions published between 1733 and 1817 in Italian and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Si l'œuvre peint de Léonard de Vinci...a installé immédiatement l'artiste comme un des phares de la Renaissance, en revanche, ses écrits sur l'art...connurent un succès différé et médiatisé: c'est une sélection anonyme de ces écrits, opérée à partir du Libro di pittura et publiée pour la première fois à Paris en 1651 sous le titre de Trattato della pittura par les soins de Raphaël Trichet du Fresne de Chambray, qui consacre la fortune de Léonard théoricien, l'impose à l'attention de l'Académie Royale de Peinture et en fait pour longtemps un des textes fondateurs de la pensée sur l'art. Cette édition, présentée et annotée par Anna Sconza, confronte pour la première fois les deux versions contemporaines, italienne (fondée sur le texte de Francesco Melzi) et française (français moyen), richement illustrées par les gravures de René Lochon, inspirées par les dessins préparatoires de Nicolas Poussin et de Charles Errard."--Page [4] of cover

Hypnerotomachia Poliphili = The strife of love in a dream by Francesco Colonna( Book )

6 editions published between 1554 and 1772 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is hard to believe that the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, printed by Aldus Manutius in 1499, one of the most famous books in the world, read by every Renaissance intellectual and endlessly referred to in studies of art and culture ever since, has never appeared in English. One reason, no doubt, is the length and difficulty of the text. It is a strange, pagan, pedantic, erotic, allegorical, mythological romance relating in highly stylized Italian the quest of Poliphilo for his beloved Polia. The author (presumed to be Francesco Colonna, a friar of dubious reputation) was obsessed by architecture, landscape and costume - it is not going too far to say sexually obsessed - and its 174 woodcuts are a primary source for Renaissance ideas on both buildings and gardens. In 1592 a beginning was made to produce an English version but the translator gave up after only a third of the text. Now, at last, the task has been triumphantly accomplished by Joscelyn Godwin, who succeeds in reproducing all its wayward charm and arcane learning in language accessible to the modern reader."--Jacket
