Leonardo Against Nature

Leonardo da Vinci’s investigations of nature led him to reflect on the “counter-natural,” a category revived from antiquity that identified art with violence. This paper will examine Leonardo's redefinition of thecounter-natural, looking both at his sources and at the significance of his thinking for the understanding of painting ca. 1500.

  • Are you obliged to write a reference letter if asked by a student and how might you respond if you are not supportive?
  • How much lead time should you expect in order to write a reference letter?
  • What information should be provided by the student?

What are the key elements of a “good” reference letter and what pitfalls should be avoided?
