Dedicated to the legacy of Leonardo da Vinciís art theory, this publication focuses on Leonardoís Treatise on Painting, the only text by the artist that circulated widely for over four centuries.

Current expansion

Thanks to a second grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, this digital publication is currently expanding its coverage of materials to new manuscripts and printed editions of Leonardoís Treatise on Painting as well as to additional supporting materials to facilitate the use of its research tools by scholars and students.
