Description

Pages containing human figures and a horse, which accompany the precepts of Leonardo’s Treatise on Painting included in the Editio Princeps printed in Italian in 1651 in Paris (in the same year a French edition was also published). This work was brought into being thanks to a group linked by a passion for art and a high level of culture. Chief among them was Cavaliere Cassiano dal Pozzo, a descendant of a noble Piedmontese family and personal secretary to Cardinal Francesco Barberini, known as the “Cardinal Master”. For the iconographic part Cassiano was helped by his friend, the painter Nicolas Poussin, who created the wonderful drawings, but whose graphical interpretation of Leonardo's artistic theory was far removed from the original drawings and closer to the style of the time. The drawings of the diagrams that demonstrate scientific arguments were drawn for the editio princeps by Pierfrancesco degli Alberti (1584-1638), author of the Maps in Bosio’s Subterranean Rome.
