The Life of Leonardo da Vinci
A master of the Italian Renaissance, Da Vinci led a life as colourful as his paintings. In this new edition of The Life of Leonardo da Vinci by scholar Martin Kemp, Vasari's compelling classic is transposed into modern English and updated with new insights into the artist's career.
Translated in partnership with Lucy Russell, this 1550 edition and expanded 1568 version presented together on the page for the first time, with succinct notes providing a modern knowledge of the text. Each of the pieces discussed by Vasari feature illustrations, alongside a selection of Da Vinci's studies in technology and science.
Coinciding with the 500th anniversary of the artist's death, this fascinating read is an accessible telling of the progress of art by one of the Renaissance greats.
