Art historian and one of the world’s leading experts on Leonardo da Vinci Professor Martin Kemp produces a fresh set of criteria for understanding the role of art in history and asks whether art speaks of enduring values across the ages. Kemp looks at works that have changed how art achieves its effects, in the context of the writings and institutions of the diverse periods. Each selected painting or sculpture is subject to a set-piece account of a more literary kind than prevails in modern art history. Animations in the e-book version of Art in History add a new dimension.

Kemp is emeritus professor in the history of art at the University of Oxford. He has written extensively on imagery in art and science from the Renaissance to the present day. His books include Leonardo and Christ to Coke: How Image Becomes Icon
