Overview

Leonardo Da Vinci: The Mind of the Renaissance by Alessandro Vezzosi

This is a thorough, accessible survey of the life and work of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), the greatest and most versatile artist and anatomist of the Italian Renaissance. More than a biography, this profusely illustrated book traces his personal, artistic, and philosophical development and sets his life in the context of the great courts at which he worked: the Florence of the Medici princes, the Milan of the Sforza dukes, and royal France. It also explores his groundbreaking research in natural science, medicine, hydraulics, metal-casting, mechanics, painting, architecture, and warfare and weaponry.

I am an art history major and bought this little book on Leonardo because it had many sketches with translations and details of all his known works. It turns out that the author is the founder of the da Vinci museum in Vinci and has a tremendous wealth of knowlege included in this book. Each image in the book is backed up by careful retracing of historical significance and through sketches and comparisons of other artists' works.
