Leonardo Da Vinci: The Complete Paintings and Drawings
by Frank Zollner
A masterful compilation of the works of one who is generally considered to be the greatest painter of all times. Not only one of the most famous painter in the History of art, Leonardo Da Vinci is probably one of the most extraordinary figures in literature and science, and the inventor and precursor of war machines and the like. His drawings and sketches reveal not only a spectacular imagination and vision, but also a tremendous skill and knowledge as a draftsman and engineer. This stunning volume, which compiles the works in all fields in which Da Vinci excelled, is complete with a thorough and beautiful text putting these works back in their historical context, and highlighting all the more the mastery, skill and genius at the origin of one of the most impressive body of works of all times. 695 pages. 10 x 15 inches.
Lavishly illustrated with full-color reproductions of the artist's works, paintings, drawings, and texts from his sketchbooks. Includes a biography detailing each step of the life of the artist, as well as a catalog of the graphic work and an appendix with a concordance of drawings, a bibliography and an index. With slipcase.
