Text by Giorgio Vasari, Adela Montes.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519), the archetype of the “Renaissance man,” left behind only a few paintings, but each one confirms his place as one of the most respected and admired painters in the Western tradition. This attractively priced book, the most affordable da Vinci book available, contains the entirety of his painted work as well as sketches and drawings that have led to the definitive attribution of his works. Vasari's “Life of Leonardo da Vinci” is also included; Vasari, who knew the artist during his life, described a number of da Vinci's works and has likewise contributed to the authentication of his work.

Da Vinci's paintings are some of the earliest examples of the psychological portrait. In his pictures, it is the changing atmospheric conditions that complement and breathe life into the delicate rendering of forms and the emotional experiences of his subjects.

Leonardo da Vinci: Under the SkinLeonardo da Vinci: Under the Skin

Published by Royal Academy of Arts.
By Stephen Farthing, Michael Farthing.

Leonardo da Vinci created many of the most beautiful and important drawings in the history of Western art. His anatomical drawings became the yardstick for the early study of the human body. From their unique perspectives as artist and scientist, brothers Stephen and Michael Farthing analyze Leonardo’s drawings—which are concerned chiefly with the skeletal, cardiovascular, muscular and nervous systems—and discuss the impact they had on both art and medical understanding.

In addition, Stephen has created a series of drawings in response to Leonardo, which are reproduced with commentary by Michael, who also provides a useful glossary of medical terminology. Together, they reveal how some of Leonardo’s leaps of understanding were nothing short of revolutionary and, despite some misunderstandings, attest to the accuracy of his grasp.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) was born in Florence and studied with the renowned painter Verrocchio, qualifying as a “master” at the age of 20 in 1472. After his apprenticeship he worked for Ludovico il Moro, later moving to Rome, Bologna and Venice before settling in France, where his final three years were spent in the service of François I.

The Complete Works

Published by Silvana Editoriale.
Text by Giovanni Villa.

More iconic images accrue to the name of Leonardo da Vinci than to any other artist. The “Mona Lisa” stands as a sort of primary visual signifier for “Art” itself, just as his drawing of Vitruvian Man stands as a primary visual signifier for “Man.” This new da Vinci monograph presents this ultimate Renaissance man’s complete corpus, from the most renowned oil paintings such as “Lady with an Ermine,” “Virgin of the Rocks” and “Mona Lisa” to frescoes such as “The Last Supper” in Santa Maria delle Grazie Church and the ceiling frescoes of the Sala delle Asse in Castello Sforzesco in Milan. All works are reproduced in full-color plates, many of them augmented with detail plates that reveal the extraordinary care lavished by the artist upon his canvases. Also included are da Vinci’s preparatory drawings and cartoons; works no longer extant, such as “The Battle of Anghiari,” are enumerated as part of the da Vinci corpus. Affordably priced and superbly produced, this volume offers a basic da Vinci monograph for all.
