This generously illustrated book presents highlights from the National Gallery’s display of Italian Renaissance painting, one of the richest collections of its kind in the world. Duccio to Leonardo focuses on Italian masterpieces made between 1250 and 1500, including highlights such as Duccio’s Annunciation, Botticelli’s Venus and Mars, and Leonardo’s Virgin and Child with Saint Anne and Saint John the Baptist. It begins with a short introduction on the formation of the collection, before discussing each of the chosen works. 

Simona Di Nepi was the Assistant Curator of Renaissance Paintings at the National Gallery, London. She has contributed to the National Gallery publications Velázquez, Renaissance Siena: Art for a City and Renaissance Faces.

"Nevertheless, as an introductory work on the history of this part of the collection, written in a readily accessible style, it is finely produced and satisfying in its contents."—Darrelyn Gunzburg, The Art Book
