Leonardo da Vinci and the ethics of style brings together a distinguished group of experts on Leonardo and the Renaissance, examining the ethical underpinnings of art history. The seven essays articulate the complexity of ways in which style involved ethical considerations during the early modern period, and still involves us in its conundrums. Looking at individual works and concepts, this fascinating collection covers subjects such as Leonardo's understanding of his role as a painter as that of a natural philosopher, his interests in visual perception and the understanding of visual sensations by the mind, how and why Leonardo's ideas on painting are at the core of art theory, how Leonardo addresses style in gendered terms, and 'style' as the historian's projection. This volume will be of great interest to all those studying or with an enthusiasm for Renaissance art history, art theory, cultural studies and philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is art history at its best: lucid, firmly embedded in historical context, wide-ranging (without losing sight of the centrality of visual culture for the work at hand), and impeccably erudite" --Alexander Marr, University of St. Andrews
