Description
Painter, sculptor, inventor, anatomist—Leonardo da Vinci embodied the intelligence and creativity that informed the Renaissance. In this biography, the author of The Lodger Shakespeare traces da Vinci's journey from his beginnings as an illegitimate child in Tuscany through his apprenticeship with Verrocchio to his service with some of the most powerful families of Europe. By delving into da Vinci's notebooks, Charles Nicholl looks for clues regarding possible Shakespeare's bisexuality and the identity of the Mona Lisa, and fleshes out this larger-than-life artist as he does so. The book features 16 pages of color reproductions, as well as dozens of black-and-white illustrations.

"Charles Nicholl's Leonardo da Vinci isn't merely a lovely book, it's Leonardoesque. Leonardo knew how to make drawings and paintings glow with lyrical mystery. At its best, Nicholl's book glows too."—NYTBR
