"Beauty: the adjustment of all parts proportionately so that one cannot add or subtract or change without impairing the harmony of the whole." -- Leon Battista Alberti
Leon Battista Alberti (February 18, 1404 – April 20, 1472) was an Italian author, artist, architect, poet, priest, linguist, philosopher, and cryptographer, and general Renaissance humanist polymath: though he is often characterized as "architect" James Beck observes, "to single out one of Leon Battista's 'fields' over others as somehow functionally independent and self-sufficient is of no help at all to any effort to characterize Alberti's extensive explorations in the fine arts." Alberti's life was described in Giorgio Vasari's Vite de' pi¨ eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori or 'Lives of the most excellent painters, sculptors and architects'.
