This book contains 262 high-quality annotated reproductions with details of paintings and drawings by Leonardo da Vinci. Some people say that the "devil's in the details" and generally, they are right. Looking out for the small details in one picture is a good practice, since in most of the cases small but ultimately important details is the heart of a great author's idea. This title aims to help you see the details of his works; his secrets are not in his words, they are in his works. Look close up at his paintings and drawings, and that tell you what you cannot see but need to know and that should be enough.
His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Titan, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.
