Leonardo : Masters of Art
by Milena Magnano




Overview -
This generously illustrated volume on the work of Leonardo da Vinci makes the world's greatest art accessible to readers of every level of appreciation. Although less than twenty of Leonardo da Vinci's paintings are known to exist today, some of them-the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, along with his drawing of the Vitruvian man-are among the most identifiable, reproduced, and popular works in the world. This monograph explores Leonardo as not just a painter but also a scientist, naturalist, architect, and engineer, showing how the artist's oeuvre reflected his boundless curiousity and imagination. Overflowing with impeccably reproduced images, this book offers full-page spreads of masterpieces as well as highlights of smaller details-allowing the viewer to appreciate every aspect of the artist's technique and oeuvre. Chronologically arranged, the book covers important biographical and historic events that reflect the latest scholarship. Additional information includes a list of works, timeline, and suggestions for further reading.
