Leonardo da Vinci: Self Art and Nature
In this illuminating biography, Quiviger looks closely at three themes that shaped Da Vinci’s life: nature, art, and the self.
From his rural Tuscan upbringing to his famous workshop in Florence, these topics had a massive impact on the Italian master’s life. This book examines Da Vinci as an artist, courtier and thinker, and how he rose from a basic education and low social standing to a court artist and familiar of kings.
Following Da Vinci’s life from his humble beginnings to his death, this book explores how he expressed these three themes, not only in his art, but in his architecture, engineering, scientific studies and cartography. It concludes with observations about Da Vinci’s relevance today as a model of the multidisciplinary artist.
