Leonardo & Cesare da Sesto: Nel Rinascimento Meridionale


The central theme of this book is the role that Cesare da Sesto played in the spread of “Leonardo’s way” in Southern Italy. His activity in the South of Italy was an important moment both for his artistic career, and for its impact on local artists. His work in fact played a key role in the opening the artistic production in Southern Italy especially to Leonardo and Raphael, the great masters of the Renaissance who inspired Cesare da Sesto. So he was the bold innovator of figurative language of Southern Italy in the first half of the 16th century. The hand of the artist is recognizable in some compartments of the Polyptych of Cava de’ Tirreni, a work which in the exhibition has been brought to the attention of critics by Nicola Barbatelli, author of an in-depth writing on the polyptych. The catalogue is enriched by a significant set of illustrations and a careful Appendix which outlines the results, so far unpublished, of the survey in Reflectography made on the Polyptych. Another painting exhibited and presented in the catalogue is the so-called Table Lucana, which is placed rightfully among the testimonies of ‘Leonardo’s way’ in the Southern Italy. With a foreword by Carlo Pedretti.

This is the Italian language edition.
