Artist, inventor, visionary: few men have more profoundly influenced art and science than Leonardo da Vinci. This beautifully illustrated book looks at his life and work, from his early childhood and apprenticeship with Verrocchio to the setting up of his own workshop in Florence and his time in Milan under patron Ludovico Sforza.
In addition to providing a wealth of information about his artistic techniques and style, as well as his labor as a civil and military engineer, this stunning volume offers 30 fascinating removable facsimile documents that provide unprecedented insight into one of history’s most intriguing figures.
