Ames-Lewis argues that by the early sixteenth century, artists and painters clearly saw themselves as conducting an intellectual activity and as being a part of the larger scholarly community. Art had become one of the liberal arts. Renaissance writers, particularly after Alberti, increasingly placed art on an equal footing with poetry, often citing Horace's dictum "as a painting, so is a poem. Some even argued for the superiority of painting to verse.

School University of California, Berkeley. Yale Uni versity Press ’ s decision to reissue the book acknowledges that the development of drawing in the fifteenth century has increasingly come to be seen as a crucial element in Renaissance artistic practice. The reconstruction of this development that I set out in 1981, and my discussion then of the techniques and functions of Renaissance drawings, still for the most part represents my understanding of these aspects of artistic activity.

I checked the hardback version of this out of the library and was impressed by the reproduction of drawings and the explanatory text. Sadly, the reproductions of drawings in the paperback version are so poor that it is almost a different book. Some drawings are so faint they are almost invisible, while others are very dark, transforming drawings that in the hardback appear delicate and fine into muddy, ugly images. Since these images are intended to illustrate points in the text, it is an inferior presentation. Very disappointing. If I didn't have to pay return postage I would return it.

Drawing in Early Renaissance Italy: Revised Edition is an excellant book about the origin of drawing in the late Middle Ages to Early Renaissance. The author writes well and makes the subject matter a joy to read. If you are at all interested in the development of drawing and how it fits into the art making process then you will find this book extremely helpful and eye opening.
