The Artist, The Genius, The Legend

Leonardo da Vinci’s legacy is everywhere: from bridges to helicopters, fashion to fiction, flying machines, human anatomy, not to mention some of the most compelling artworks ever created by man. Leonardo da Vinci was centuries ahead of his time, a visionary and innovator turned international icon. Fueled by his limitless desire for knowledge, Leonardo made groundbreaking advancements that still influence and inform our world today.

In Leonardo: Insatiable Curiosity, historian and philosopher Justin Smith traces the artistic drives of the quintessential Renaissance thinker, captures a glimpse into the man behind the genius, and pays tribute to a life without which the word curiosity would have never found its real-life representative.
