Text: English, Romanian (translation)From Library Journal:
The disheartening paucity of finished works by Leonardo da Vinci is partially recompensed by the superabundance of surviving drawings. This excellent selection of 100 drawings from the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle offers not only an exquisite sampling of Leonardo's extraordinarily diverse graphic oeuvre but also a genuinely accessible scholarly introduction to the drawings as a whole. Brief but penetrating introductory essays aptly characterize the activities of each phase of his career, while the carefully wrought catalog entries?complemented by fine color reproductions?examine the manifold functions for which the drawings were employed. Students of Leonardo will appreciate curator Clayton's straightforward characterizations, his thoughtful reexamination of some pieces, the chronological setting, and his ability to articulate scholarly complexities in a lucid and unpedantic fashion. For most libraries.?Robert Cahn, Fashion Inst. of Technology, New York
