To anyone who wants to unleash their inner potential as an artist, this book is the real Da Vinci Code.

There are many books that promise to teach you how to paint like the Old Masters, but only this one was written by the Old Master himself. In this practical guide which has been used for centuries as a basic textbook in the finest art schools, Leonardo da Vinci, one of the greatest painters who ever lived, reveals the secrets of his art. The most practical and down-to-earth of the great Masters, da Vinci provides usable advice on a wide variety of topics, from constructing perspective and mixing paints to reflecting on the nature of art itself. The text is designed to be used by beginners and experienced painters alike, and is brought to life with illustrations prepared by Nicole Poussin and Alberti based on da Vinci’s own specifications. Like his paintings, da Vinci’s advice to artists is even more valuable now than it was centuries ago.

"Leonardo da Vinci On Painting" is presented here in an authoritative and fluid English translation, meticulously edited and formatted for Kindle.
