The quintessential "Renaissance man", Leonardo da Vinci's artistic masterpieces, scientific discoveries, architecture and philosophy still astonishes today. In this beautifully illustrated book, Frank Zollner uncovers the young artist in Florence, da Vinci's beginnings as a court artist in Milan, the artist and "science" and his last years. He profiles da Vinci's drawings and sketches for surviving or documented paintings, his anatomical drawings, studies of engineering and military equipment. "He was like a man who woke too early, in the darkness, while everyone else was still sleeping" -- Dimitry S. Merezhkovsky.
