Description - Leonardo Da Vinci by Christiane Weidemann

This book explores Leonardo da Vinci's unique artistic talents and at the same time introduces Leonardo the mathematician, urban planner, cartographer, poet, musician, astronomer, and medical scientist. Readers will learn what daily life was like in Leonardo's time and in the tiny Tuscan village where he was born. They'll witness the scientific discoveries that inspired the young artist and the cultural forces that nourished his creative spirit. This book features high quality reproductions of his most famous works along with notebook sketches of dissected bodies, flying machines, and even robots. The artist's personal life is told through fascinating anecdotes that look beyond the myth to bring the man into clearer focus. Throughout, the author's engaging tone allows readers to experience familiar masterpieces with a fresh eye.
