In a new book from The Florentine Press, Finding Leonardo: The Case for Recovering 'The Battle of Anghiari', art historian Rab Hatfield revisits historical data and scholarly analysis in light of new archival evidence and results from recent thermographic examinations to clarify the painting's exact location in the Palazzo Vecchio.
Rather than submit his research to a scholarly journal, which was his original intent, Hatfield, a past Member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton and former Fellow of Villa I Tatti, decided to publish with a fledgling popular press. Support from actor and art historian Peter Weller and The Friends of Florence, a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoration of the city's art treasures, made publication through The Florentine Press possible.
In an essay for the general reader, Hatfield identifies the mural's location, posits its probable size and context, considers the possible existence of other work, and explores the complex issues of the painting's state and the viability of its recovery. He offers a section of detailed notes for the scholar.
A professor at Syracuse University in Florence, Hatfield is also the author of The Wealth of Michelangelo and Botticelli's Uffizi "Adoration": A Study in Pictorial Content. He serves on the advisory commission of a major international project to search for the mural using non-invasive technology, a joint effort of the University of San Diego and the University of Florence.
Explaining his decision to present his meticulous research in this unusual format, Hatfield noted that in the years it takes for an article to appear in a scholarly journal, the research project to determine its existence will be completed. He also wanted to make the information accessible to those beyond the art history community.
