Product Description

One of the most accomplished human beings who ever lived, Leonardo remains the quintessential Renaissance genius.Creator of the world's most famous painting, this scientist, artist, philosopher, inventor, builder, and mechanicepitomized the great flowering of human consciousnessthat marks his era.And yet, so wide-ranging and prolific were his interests that he brought hardly any major undertaking to a final end.
Leonardo also advanced numerous artistic techniques, and implicated a complex psychology into his paintings ofThe Last Supperand the enigmaticLa Gioconda,orMona Lisa.Famous horseman, rival to Michelangelo, military engineer to the Borgias, he died in 1519 in a chateau given to him by Francis I, King of France. Not bad for the illegitimate son of a Florentine notary.
