A universal man, explorer of the extreme confines of the mind and art.
Perhaps no other figure in the history of humankind has embodied true “genius” as fully as Leonardo. In the heart of the Italian Renaissance, in the Florence of the Medici and the Milan of the Sforza, Leonardo explored the widest range of fields of art and science, decisively expanding human knowledge.
Always ready to experiment with new scientific horizons, Leonardo projected all his activities into drawing and painting, creating some of the most famous and most imitated masterpieces of all time, but without unveiling all the mysteries of his incomparable life and thought.
The book offers an unusual concentration of information on the artist, with over 300 full-color illustrations.
