Leonardo da Vinci: The Complete Paintings in Detail

Leonardo da Vinci: The Complete Paintings in Detail

While Leonardo da Vinci is one of history’s most studied and renowned artists, there are many myths surrounding his work. Beginning with his birth and early maturity in the workshops of the Florentine masters, Alessandro Vezzosi delves into the provenance of disputed works such as Madonna Litta and La Bella Principessa. He demonstrates how recent advances in technology have aided researchers in studying and restoring da Vinci’s art — including settling controversial attributions — and he explores the artist’s scientific achievements in the fields of optics and paint composition. A fitting tribute to da Vinci, this wide-ranging book applies 21st-century knowledge to help answer centuries-old questions about the Renaissance genius.
