"Highly recommended" Apollo Magazine "Highly readable... Also included are documentary sources and letters illuminating Leonardo's career; the manuscript sources for all of Leonardo's statements are fully cited in the notes. The volume is skillfully translated and is illustrated with appropriate examples of drawings and paintings by the artist." Choice "Easier to read and more convenient than previous compilations." Charles Hope, New York Review of Books "A chaotic assemblage of Leonardo da Vinci's writings appeared in 1651 as Treatise on Painting... Kemp successfully applies order to the chaos." ArtNews
