Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) possessed one of the greatest minds the world has ever known. Painter, draftsman, inventor, theorist, and teacher, he is the quintessential Renaissance genius whose contributions have laid the foundation of our civilization's understanding and definition of fine art, literature, science, and technology. During his life, Leonardo kept notebooks filled with ruminations on painting, architecture, botany, anatomy, physical science, aerodynamics, geography, and much more. Leonardo's Notebooks collects the most fascinating of these studies and compiles them into one monumental volume that demystifies Leonardo's insights and illuminates them with more than a thousand original sketches and drawings. Much of Leonardo's own cryptic handwriting has been deciphered and translated so as to connect the reader even more deeply to the work and the mind of its creator. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
An all-new, jewel-like, reader-friendly format gives new life to this relaunch of an international best-seller.
Leonardo da Vinci?artist, inventor, and prototypical Renaissance man?is a perennial source of fascination because of his astonishing intellect and boundless curiosity about the natural and man-made world. During his life he created numerous works of art and kept voluminous notebooks that detailed his artistic and intellectual pursuits.
The collection of writings and art in this magnificent book are drawn from his notebooks. The book organizes his wide range of interests into subjects such as human figures, light and shade, perspective and visual perception, anatomy, botany and landscape, geography, the physical sciences and astronomy, architecture, sculpture, and inventions. Nearly every piece of writing throughout the book is keyed to the piece of artwork it describes.
The writing and art is selected by art historian H. Anna Suh, who provides fascinating commentary and insight into the material, making Leonardo's Notebooks an exquisite single-volume compendium celebrating his enduring genius.
