Description

By Frank Zllner and Johannes Nathan

Leonardo da Vinci (Italian, 14521519) possessed one of the greatest minds of all time; his importance and influence are inestimable. This two-volume, midsize format comprehensive survey is the most complete book ever made on the subject of this Italian painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, scientist and all-around genius. With huge, full- bleed details of Leonardo's masterworks, this highly original publication allows the reader to inspect the subtlest facets of his brushstrokes.

Part I explores Leonardo's life and work in ten chapters. All of his paintings are interpreted in depth, with The Annunciation and The Last Supper featured on large double-spreads.

Part II comprises a catalogue raisonn of Leonardo's paintings, which covers all of his surviving and lost painted works and includes texts describing their states of preservation.

Part III contains an extensive catalogue of his drawings (numbering in the thousands, they cannot all be reproduced in one book); 663 are presented, arranged by category (architecture, technical, anatomical, figures, proportion, cartography, etc).

700 pages, full-color illustrations throughout. 8 3/4'' x 11 1/2''. Paper, with slipcase.
