"A famous humanist of the Italian Renaissance, author of a De pictura and a De re aedifcatoria that have become reference works in the history of the arts, an accomplished mathematician and geometer, a witness to and participant in the debates on perspective and natural vision, Alberti is also the author of a De statua. Since 1869, date of the only and not very faithful French translation of the work, this important text, presented here in a bilingual critical edition, had remained unpublished - just like La Vie d'Alberti par lui-même, which we are publishing for the first time, along with some letters. As the volume progresses, Vasari's portrait of one of the most illustrious artists and thinkers of the Renaissance, a universal man whom Burckhardt saw as an exemplary figure among the great individuals of Western history, becomes more precise and engaging. De statua, between ancient statuary and modern sculpture, a theoretical and technical text at the same time, will become a decisive element of current reflections on sculpture, its definition and its functions."
