De prospectiva pingendi



De Prospectiva Pingendi Fac SimileAboca Museum Editions presents the facsimile of the manuscript De prospectiva pingendi by Piero della Francesca, a renowned artist born in Sansepolcro, in which the bases of a new Renaissance geometrical perspective are outlined.

In the Treatise, very likely written between 1472 and 1475, a number of perspective reduction problems are proposed, from the simplest ones to the more complex ones, conceived so as to introduce gradually to the new technique, through practical demonstrations. The Artist puts a number of queries and replies with the construction of the perspective by means of geometrical drawings and illustrations.

The precious facsimile, made by Aboca Museum Editions, reproduces the Treatise stored in the Panizzi Library in Reggio Emilia, with all the majesty of the noble binding and of the one-hundred autograph drawings of Piero, elements that undoubtedly give to this work of remarkable historical, artistic and scientific importance an extra value.

Aboca Museum confirms, with this artistic publication, its strong will to enhance the value of the historical culture of its land, the Tuscan Tiber Valley, side by side with its basic interest for the medicinal plants.

THE COMMENTARY

Deprosp Prof CommentarioThis critical commentary explores the innovative "lessons in perspective" by Piero della Francesca. The thorough scientific analysis, made simple and comprehensible by the expert authors, is illustrated with a series of charming and eloquent images. In his essay: Piero della Francesca, Painting and Perspective, Massimo Mussini, art historian and authority on the problems in painting, identifies the artist's practical application of the rules of perspective in his paintings. Luigi Grasselli, mathematician and expert of algebraic and geometric topology, analyses and comments on the drawings by Piero in his essay entitled La geometria del De Prospectiva Pingendi.
