Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Leonardo (1452-1519), born in Vinci, Italy, was an artist of the Renaissance. For hundreds of years he was known as a painter and sculptor, but he was also an inventor and studied anatomy extensively. He was instrumental in changing the painting world with his new approach to perspective and his methods of shading and showing movement were revolutionary. Concise text provides a quick overview of the life of this remarkable man. Photographs of Leonardo's art work and drawings accompany each page of text. As part of the "Masterpieces: Artists and their Works" series, the book includes a table of contents, timeline, glossary, index, and internet sites. 2004, Bridgestone Books/Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.
