Item description for The Legacy of Leonardo: Painters in Lombardy 1490-1530 by Bora Giulio, Roddy Doyle, Adrienne Beck, Tony Lawson, Alan Norrie, Frances E. Wall & David Mungello...

The ever increasing art historical attention being paid to the School of Leonardo lies at the root of this volume published almost sixty years after Suida's classic treatment of the subject. This is the first time since then that Lombard art of Leonardesque inspiration has been the object of a systematic analysis embracing a period of around half a century starting from 1490. The essays opening the volume provide an overview dealing with the environment, the organisation and the working practices of Leonardo's atelier and the problems faced by historians, whilst each artist is discussed in a critical profile that, taking into account the most recent academic research, acts a brief but up-to-date monograph.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Legacy of Leonardo: Painters in Lombardy 1490-1530?

Essential compilation on Leonardos pupils and followers  Nov 18, 2005
The followers of Leonardo da Vinci are often blamed for lack of personal style. This book helps to discern the individual work of every single painter. It comes clear that the work of Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio, Cesare da Sesto or Bernardino Luini deserves closer inspection. In my opinion the meticulous and noteworthy well balanced portraiture of Boltraffio is a major discovery. By the way the painting on p.381 indicated as "copy after Francesco Melzi" might be a copy after Boltraffio. Still this beautifully illustrated volume remains a must book for the lovers of renaissance art.
