Leonardo in primo piano

Leonardo in primo piano

Leonardo embodies the archetype of the polymath. A brilliant and polyvalent figure, he left an indelible mark on all the disciplines he experimented with: painting, drawing, science, mathematics, architecture, engineering and cartography. His genius as a painter lay in an analytical knowledge of the human body, nature and the laws of physics regarding light. The book contains all Leonardo’s painted works – including masterpieces such as The Annunciation, The Baptism of Christ, Mona Lisa and the Virgin of the Rocks – and some of his lovelies drawings. Stefano Zuffi accompanies readers through an analysis of the works, entering into the details, shown in blow-ups of the most significant features.

Advancing by themes (animals, children, actions, nature, gazes, smiles, technology and anatomy), the author unveils the relationship between Leonardo and the world around him in a fascinating interpretation of one of the greatest artists of all times.
