Leonardo da Vinci is considered the master of the Renaissance and the most outstanding genius of his time. Well known for such works as “Mona Lisa” and “The Last Supper,” he was much more than an extraordinarily skilled painter. In fact, he preferred to refer to himself as a civil and military engineer.
“The Treasures of Leonardo da Vinci” is a unique guide to this genius of mankind, explains the life and times of this artist and engineer, and analyzes the dominant themes in his work. Illustrated with great profusion and beauty, the book also contains 30 extraordinary facsimiles, including among others:
Leonardo’s birth registration made by his grandfather in 1452.
A copy of the letter that Leonardo sent to Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, from 1483.
The safe-conduct given to Leonardo by César Borgia.
The map of Imola drawn by Leonardo.
A fragment of the notes written by Leonardo on machines for polishing mirrors.
Pages from the diary of Antonio de Beatis in which he mentions “Mona Lisa”.
