“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

― Leonardo da Vinci

 

Originally published in 1651, Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Trattato della Pittura’ or ‘Treatise on Painting’ is a collection of notes and writings on painting. The main focus of this treatise was to convey that painting was a science and not just an art form. (Greenberg, 259). Da Vinci discusses the state of human emotion in art and incorporates the depictions of those emotions in his art.

 

This 18th-century French edition was published in Paris by Deterville. The sketches and folding plates are particularly desirable, a classic inclusion of this famous work.
