Leonardo da Vinci
A reference book on an artist who cannot be ignored by one of his most eminent specialists
Tracing in detail Leonardo's life, this book combines an artistic and scientific approach in order to better perceive the genius of this extraordinary man. With an unparalleled curiosity, this artist-scientist was interested in all fields: philosophy, mathematics, mechanics, optics, anatomy, cartography, architecture, astronomy, meteorology, without forgetting of course the art of painting, sculpture, but also theatre and music! A prolific artist, Leonard tirelessly represented the world around him, giving him a precision rarely achieved, both in painting and drawing.
In addition to the fifteen or so famous paintings attributed to him, Leonardo da Vinci left behind an impressive number of notebooks and manuscripts testifying to an untiring quest for an understanding of the world.
Exploring the artist's infinite creative inventiveness, this book shows all the facets of a genius down to the most recent discoveries and attributions.
