The deftness of da vinci. The drawings of Art History's master genius. One of the most accomplished human beings who ever lived, Leonardo da Vinci remains the quintessential Renaissance genius.

Creator of the world's most famous paintings, this scientist, artist, philosopher, inventor, builder, and mechanic epitomized the great flowering of human consciousness that marks his era. Leonardo da Vinci - The Graphic Work features top quality reproductions of 663 of Leonardo's drawings, from anatomical studies to architectural plans, from complex engineering designs to pudgy infant portraits.

All of the drawings, more than half of which were provided by the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle, are presented in full-page format. Delve in and delight in the delicate finesse of one of the most talented minds, and hands, in history.

Industry Reviews

"Fantastic... a `home museum' of a kind that does not exist for many other artists. Even the smallest drawing is reproduced in outstanding quality..."
