Leonardo in Dialogue
The Artist Amid His Contemporaries
edited by Francesca Borgo, Rodolfo Maffeis, Alessandro Nova
Leonardo is often considered an artist apart, isolated in his greatness. This book is designed to set him in conjunction with broader conditions of art making. It is also designed to bring the rich and challenging nature of Leonardo studies under the collective consideration and scrutiny of scholars, irrespective of methodological training and across geographic and institutional boundaries. The volume aims to foster Leonardo's dialogues – those between the artist and his contemporaries, as well as between Leonardo specialists and Renaissance art historians writ large.
