ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion about the theories of visual art of L. B. Alberti. It is stated that Alberti's treatises on the visual arts imply a hidden theoretical message for the philosophizing humanist. The article widens knowledge about this message inculcated on his treatises which involve the aspects of beauty, painting, sculpture, and architecture. Alberti, being noted for his exemplary pursuit of the Renaissance idea of the universal man, is said to have notions about the visual-artistic beauty relating to both sensible and intelligible fields.
