  • The Young Leonardo: Art and Life in Fifteenth-Century Florence

    Leonardo da Vinci is often presented as the "Transcendent Genius," removed from or ahead of his time. This book, however, attempts to understand him in the context of Renaissance Florence.

While celebrating his many artistic achievements, the book illuminates his debt to other artists' works and his struggles to gain and retain patronage, as well as his career and personal difficulties.

Fortunately for posterity, Leonardo left his Treatise on Painting, essentially a primer for students interested in learning the craft of drawing and painting.Even a quick perusal of this...

  • Thoughts on Art and Life: What I have Learned!

    Since the decay of ancient art no painter had been able to fully express the human form, for imperfect mastery of technique still proved the barrier. Leonardo was the first completely to disengage his personality from its constraint, and make line express thought as none before him could do. Nor was this his only triumph, but rather the foundation on which further achievement rested. Remarkable as a thinker alone, he preferred to enlist thought in the service of art, and make art the handmaid of beauty. Leonardo saw the world not as it is, but ...
