Leonardo da Vinci and His Treatise on Painting – A Project by The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities

About: A project by The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) at the University of Virginia, “Leonardo da Vinci and His Treatise on Painting is a digital archive dedicated to the Treatise on Painting, the pivotal text for disseminating Leonardo’s art theory in Renaissance and Baroque Europe. Rather than focusing on Leonardo’s original manuscripts, which remained largely unavailable until the early nineteenth century, the digital archive focuses on the Treatise on Painting, the only text by Leonardo that circulated widely in Renaissance and Baroque Europe.”
