Leonardo da Vinci Drawings: Masterpieces of Art, by Susan Grange
Leonardo da Vinci was the original Renaissance Man, an artist, mathematician, inventor and writer amongst his many talents.
His skilful observations of the mechanics of the body informed both his work, and the generations that followed. But his drawings are elegant too, with the gentle features of his female subjects in particular graced with unrivalled care and eloquence.
Da Vinci's illustrations lie at the heart of our heritage and this new book offers a breadth and scale that will satisfy both the casual and informed reader.
