Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is considered one of the greatest of painters. He was a true Renaissance man, active in fields as diverse as astronomy, painting, sculpture, science, mathematics, engineering, cartography, and architecture. Da Vinci's true genius was not as a scienti...st or an artist, but as a combination of the two: His painting was based on a deep understanding of the workings of the human body and the physics of light and shade. No more than two dozen works are attributed to the Florentine master, and this book reveals them as never before, in stunning, full-page details. Leonardo in Detail is organized in thematic chapters, exploring the smiles, gestures, children, animals, and nature depicted in the painter's works. Stefano Zuffi is the perfect guide, explaining the significance of every detail in clear and accessible language and offering original insights into da Vinci's most popular works, such as the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, and Lady with an Ermine.
