Painter at the Court of Milan

Luke Syson

With an essay by Larry keith and contributions
by Antonio Mazzotta, Minna Moore Ede, Scott Nethersole, Arturo Galansino, and Per Rumberg

A new examination of Leonardo’s career
that illuminates his time as court painter
to the Duke of Milan, an experience that
fundamentally changed his outlook and
his legacy

The reputation of Leonardo da vinci (1452–1519) as
an inventor and scientist, and his complex personality,
have sometimes almost overshadowed the importance
of his aims and techniques as a painter. This exqui-
site book focuses on a crucial period in the 1480s and
90s when, as a salaried court artist to Duke Ludovico
Sforza in the city-state of Milan—freed from the pres-
sures of making a living in the commercially minded
Florentine republic—Leonardo produced some of the
most celebrated and infuential works of his career. The
Last Supper, his two versions of The Virgin of the Rocks,
and The Lady with an Ermine (a beautiful portrait of
Cecilia Gallerani, Ludovico’s mistress) were paintings
that set a new standard for his Milanese contemporaries.
Leonardo’s style was magnifed, through collaboration
and imitation, to become the visual language of the
regime, and by the time he returned to Florence in
1500, his status had been utterly transformed.

This new examination of Leonardo’s painting career
and his lasting impact on Italian Renaissance style
features works from U.S., British, and European col-
lections. Collectively, they represent the diverse range
of his artistic output, from drawings in chalk, ink, and
metalpoint to full-scale oil paintings. Together with the
authors’ meticulous research and detailed analysis, they
demonstrate Leonardo’s consummate skill and extraor-
dinary ambition as a painter.

LUkE SySoN is curator of Italian paintings before 1500 and head of
research at the National Gallery, London. His previous books include
Renaissance Siena and Pisanello. LARRy kEITH is director of conser-
vation, The National Gallery, London.

Chanel

A vocabulary of Style

Jérôme Gautier

A luxurious book that showcases the spirit and
essence of Chanel’s iconic style through the
medium of fashion photography

Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel (1883–1971) was
undoubtedly the most infuential fashion designer of
the 20th century. Her clothes and accessories have
remained perennially chic, and her legendary fashion
house continues to exert a powerful sway over today’s
designers. Jérôme Gautier tells the story of Chanel’s
iconic style through hundreds of images, many taken
by the leading lights of fashion photography, includ-
ing Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Jean-Paul
Goude, David LaChapelle, Horst P. Horst, Steven
Meisel, Sarah Moon, Man Ray, and Ellen von Unwerth.
This innovative volume pairs classic and contemporary
photographs, placing fashion plates from Chanel’s
time alongside those by the house’s designer-in-chief,
karl Lagerfeld. For instance, Cecil Beaton’s portrait of
Chanel appears alongside Lagerfeld’s image of Cate
Blanchett emulating her, and a classic plate by Henry
Clarke fanks an arresting shot by Juergen Teller.

Through these dazzling photographs, Chanel: A
Vocabulary of Style identifes key elements that have
defned Chanel’s style for generations, such as jersey and
tweed, formerly considered menswear fabrics, and the
little black dress, which transformed a hue previously
reserved for mourning into a statement of elegance.
Pearls were her staple, and she often embellished outfts
with her signature camellia. Twelve chapters compare
the original forms of these enduring trademarks with
their later expressions over the years and to the pres-
ent day, letting the vocabulary of Chanel’s style speak
for itself.

JÉRÔME GAUTIER is a journalist and fashion historian. A passionate
collector of fashion magazines, he lives and works in Paris.
