This masterly account of Leonardo da Vinci and his vision of the world is now widely recognized as the classic treatment of Leonardo's art, science, and thought, giving an unparalleled insight into the broadening and deepening of Leonardo's intellect and vision throughout his artistic career. Martin Kemp, one of the world's leading authorities on Leonardo, takes us on a journey through the whole span of the great man's career. From his early training in Florence, through masterpieces such as The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa, to the work of Leonardo's last years, this book gives a fullyintegrated picture of his artistic, scientific, and technological achievements. Generously illustrated, and now including a new introductory chapter setting Leonardo's work in its historical context, this fully updated new edition provides an unparalleled insight into the marvellous works of this central figure in western art.
