Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. In this volume, numerous large-sized illustrations showcase the artist’s oeuvre, and authoritative texts illustrate the decisive stages in the artist’s life and in the development of his work, explaining their significance in the context of his time and for the following generations of artists.
