Leonardo Da Vinci: The Complete Paintings

Leonardo Da Vinci: The Complete Paintings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This seminal book on the paintings of the great Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci, first published by Abrams in 2000, has now been reissued in a compact, portable paperback format. As in the earlier volume, fresh photography and advanced printing techniques allow these precious masterworks to be reproduced with unparalleled accuracy and clarity, and every one of Leonardo's paintings is included, along with a text by one of the world's leading experts on the artist. Such beloved paintings as the Mona Lisa, The Madonna of the Rocks, and The Annunciation are all showcased in this magisterial book, and the restored Last Supper is seen in all its richness of detail and tone. Scholar Pietro Marani explores Leonardo's fertile and original intellect and his astounding capacity for imbuing the human figure with emotion, sublime beauty, and grace. Preparatory drawings and studies are accompanied by enlarged details that reveal the painter's extraordinary sense of light and shadow, color and atmosphere-the fugitive, intangible quality we call "Leonardesque." Here is a book that does justice to the magnificent accomplishments of this great artist.

Review:

"The huge, superb detail shots here...will surprise even the most jaded connoisseur." Publishers Weekly
