Piero della Francesca, one of the greatest painters of the fifteenth century, was also an accomplished mathematician. This booka€”the first combined study of Pieroa€™s work as a mathematician and as a paintera€”explores the connections between these two activities and thus enhances our understanding of both his paintings and his writings. J. V. Field begins by describing Pieroa€™s education, family background, and training as a painter. The book then examines the strong sense of three-dimensional form shown in his art and the abstract solid geometry discussed in his writings. Field next considers Pieroa€™s treatise on perspective and paintings that exemplify the prescriptions it provides and assesses the optical or pictorial a€œrulesa€ Piero followed as a painter. Piero is identified as a figure of some intellectual weighta€”as a learned craftsman. The book concludes by considering the historical significance of the tradition to which he belonged and its connections with the Scientific Revolution.I ask how far the fountain is from the tower that is 40 bracci [high] and how far from the one that is 50.26 40 ] 60, 55] F 50 100 1.2 Diagram for the problem of the fountain between two towers, solved by the method of double false position inanbsp;...
