About this book:
The towering genius of Leonardo da Vinci has been celebrated - and remained undisputed - for hundreds of years. This new, ground-breaking addition to scholarship presents a completely up-to-date rethinking of the life, work and legacy of one of the greatest artists of all time.
The set, produced by Yale University Press, consists of four volumes in an elegant slipcase and is gloriously produced with 1500 illustrations over 2200 pages.
Internationally renowned Leonardo specialist Carmen C. Bambach unfurls new narratives and combs through contemporary documents and the over 4,000 surviving sheets of Leonardo’s notes and drawings, re-examining the artist's life and work and revealing the staggering and spectacular legacy that Leonardo da Vinci left behind on paper and on canvas.
Through Bambach’s comprehensive research, Leonardo emerges as a figure who both embodies his era and completely transcends it, enduring as one of history’s greatest artists, scientists, and inventors.
