Questo bellissimo Trattato della pittura fu pubblicato postumo attingendo a una copia manoscritta. Dunque non conosciamo la versione originale del prezioso manuale di Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519). La versione qui riprodotta si riferisce al Codex Urbinas Latinus 1270, collocato presso la Biblioteca apostolica vaticana, e comprende oltre duecentoventi disegni originali a corredo dell’opera.
Edwin George Lutz published this book in 1913 with Dodd, Mead and Company publishers. This is really a remarkable book in wich line is made a good reason form form. The youngest child may grasp the magic progress of this way of working and he will draw the picture naturally and well. Instructions are very brief, for the key lines of each object tell their own story and the child is entranced by the results soon gained. There is no stupid tracing in this book, for tracing accomplishes at most only a little muscular control.
