Synopsis

The genius of Leonardo da Vinci epitomises, more than that of any other figure, the Renaissance humanist ideal. The Italian painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect and engineer produced some of the most influential masterpieces of Western art, which remain the most widely popular and influential paintings of the Renaissance. Leonardo’s notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were quite simply centuries ahead of their time. Delphi’s ‘Masters of Art’ series allows digital readers to explore the works of the world’s greatest artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents the complete works of Leonardo da Vinci, the world's greatest painter, in beautiful detail, with concise introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 2)
