Michelangelo : a life on paper by Leonard Barkan ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Michelangelo is best known for great artistic achievements, but overlooked is the sheets composed with his own words. Here we can read the artist's marginal notes to his masterpieces; workaday memos to assistants and pupils; poetry and letters; and personal expressions of ambition and despair. This book will examine this intriguing interplay of words and images, providing insight into his life and work as never before."-- Publisher description
Treatise on painting <Codex urbinas latinus 1270> by Leonardo ( Book )
3 editions published between 1956 and 1979 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The genius of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) shines forth in major paintings such as the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper and his many drawings. How Leonardo accomplished these astounding works of art is shown in A Treatise on Painting, published in 1651, essentially a primer for students interested in learning the craft of drawing and painting." "Leonardo begins with careful instructions on drawing the main features of human anatomy, and then moves on to techniques of rendering motion and perspective. He discusses aspects of good composition; inventiveness; the expression of various emotions; creating effects of light, shadow, and color; and many other subtle points of artistic form. Throughout, Leonardo stresses the importance of meticulous study of the subjects to be rendered and the need for assiduous practice." "This edition is complete with anatomical drawings by the French classicist master Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) and geometrical illustrations by the great Italian Renaissance architect Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472), as well as an informative biography of Leonardo and an appendix that lists the artist's manuscripts, principal paintings, and drawings."--BOOK JACKET

Rome reborn : the Vatican Library and Renaissance culture by Library of Congress ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Vatican Library contains the richest collection of western manuscripts and early printed books in the world, and its holdings have both reflected and helped to shape the intellectual development of Europe. One of the central institutions of Italian Renaissance culture, it has served since its origin in the mid-fifteenth century as a center of research for topics as diverse as the early history of the city of Rome and the structure of the universe. This extraordinarily beautiful book which contains over 200 color illustrations, introduces the reader to the Vatican Library and examines in particular its development during the Renaissance. Distinguished scholars discuss the Library's holdings and the historical circumstances of its growth, presenting a fascinating cast of characters - popes, artists, collectors, scholars, and scientists - who influenced how the Library evolved. The authors examine subjects ranging from Renaissance humanism to Church relations with China and the Islamic world to the status of medicine and the life sciences in antiquity and during the Renaissance. Their essays are supported by a lavish display of maps, books, prints, and other examples of the Library's collection, including the Palatine Virgil (a fifth-century manuscript), a letter from King Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn, and an autographed poem by Petrarch
