Miles J Unger made me very curious about Alberti with some of the references he made during Michelangelo A Life in Six Masterpieces I went looking for anything I could find by or about Leon Battista Alberti One of the books I found was this The prose was beautiful Some of it was insightful Much of it made me smile since I knew many an accomplished artist would do the exact opposite of Alberti advised Some of it simply made me roll my eyes I came to the conclusion that Leon Battista Alberti was not a man ahead of his times like Leonardo da Vinci and so many others whom emerged to shine a light upon the dark ages pointing ahead Alberti was very much a product of the Renaissance its progress and its prejudices If you wish to get a sense of that time this is an interesting read Don’t accept everything Alberti says at face value Keep a critical eye for statements he claimed were truths Many of them are simply what Alberti believed to be best It does give readers an ideas of some of the aesthetics and morals which circulated during the Renaissance It also gives readers something to think about in considering how much these elements are subject to change and can be challenged I enjoyed reading this book It inspired me plus it made me think Its righteous tone irritated me at times plus a lot of the ‘truths’ are uestionable Still it was an interesting read
