Leonardo in Britain: Collections and Historical Reception

Leonardo in Britain: Collections and Historical Reception


Da Vinci left a lasting impression on the art world, but what legacy did the Italian master leave on Britain? This book discusses the reception of his art and science from the 17th to the 20th century and the role he played in British art and scientific thought.

Largely overshadowed by his contemporaries, Leonardo in Britain: Collections and Historical Reception examines the favoured aspects of Da Vinci’s art and writings, and discusses what was actually known of his work. This volume looks at the reception of his artistic, theoretical and scientific triumphs and offers new information on the provenance of celebrated works, considering their importance in British collections and the role of collectors.
