Leonardo Da Vinci : Artist - Scientist - Inventor Paperback / softback
It is a beautifully illustrated and fully-rounded biography of the quintessential Renaissance Man.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, (1452-1519), was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal.
Leonardo has been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man.
He is widely considered to be one of the most diversely talented people ever to have lived.
The scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and his mind and personality seem to us superhuman.
This new biography captures this and more for the discerning reader.
