Overview

The quintessential "Renaissance man," Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) is still recognized today for his accomplishments in science, architecture, and philosophy, as well as his artistic masterworks. Full-color reproductions and thorough text provide a solid introduction to this master.
 

In the past decade we have seen a whole series of spectacular new discoveries relating to Leonardo da Vinci, discoveries that are starting to change our understanding of his art for good. In the sphere of conservation science, in particular, ever more sophisticated methods of diagnostic scanning—using X-ray and infrared technologies, for example—are yielding impressive results. With the advances in modern imaging techniques, we are today able not only to access details of Leonardo’s paintings that previously lay quite literally hidden from view, but to study them in visual formats that allow us to make sense of what we are seeing.

In this beautifully illustrated book, Frank Zollner uncovers the young artist in Florence, da Vinci's beginnings as a court artist in Milan, the artist and "science," and his last years. He profiles da Vinci's drawings and sketches for surviving or documented paintings, his anotomical drawings, his allegories, studies of engineering and military equipment, and his work in proportion and light and shade.

    A masterwork to the master visionary

    Even seeing the works of Leonardo Da Vinci in museums in person I could not have studied the intricate details of his master works as in this volume. The book is printed on exceptional quality stock and in such close up detail you could swear you would feel the texture of the original strokes with your fingertips. A fitting work of art dedicated to one of the greatest artists of all time.
