Leonardo da Vinci: Masterworks : Art in the Age of the Medici, Hardback Book

Leonardo da Vinci: Masterworks : Art in the Age of the Medici Hardback

Part of the Masterworks series

Hardback

Description

"For lovers of art history, this lavishly illustrated and well-written book is an absolute gem." - Italia!

MagazineLeonardo da Vinci was the epitome of the Renaissance humanist ideal, a logical polymath of epic proportions who excelled and had interests not just in art but in invention, anatomy, architecture, engineering, literature, mathematics, music, science, astronomy and more.

His oeuvre is astounding and he is rightly famed for his masterpieces of painting such as the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, and his astonishingly technical and graceful drawings.

The phenomenon that was Leonardo would not of course have flourished to such an extent had it not been for the patronage and sponsorship of the Medici family, who commissioned a large proportion of the art and architecture of the era and fostered a fertile climate for creativity.

This sumptuous new book offers a broader view of this master artist in the context of this environment, alongside the work of other key artists who benefited from the Medicis, from Brunelleschi through Donatello to Michelangelo and Raphael.
