Pressed for some summer reading? Dive into the first volume in the series of Leonardo Studies, a tribute Festschrift in honor of our own Professor Emeritus Carlo Pedretti entitled Illuminating Leonardo, released in 2016 by Brill and featuring a chapter by another of our distinguished emeriti, Professor Emerita Joanna Woods-Marsden.  This incredible volume was co-edited by Professor Pedretti’s former Ph.D. student, Professor Constance Moffatt (’92), and Dr. Sara Taglialagamba.

Click here to read Professor Woods-Marsden’s fascinating article “Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa: A Portrait without a Commissioner?”, with thanks to Professor David Scott and dedicated to her late colleagues Professor Emeritus Donald McCallum and David Ziegler of the department’s now closed Visual Resources Collection.

Visit Brill for more information about how to access the entire volume in print or e-book form!
