'A personally compelling introduction to Leonardo's genius ... [this book] 'remains a model for a short, unified study of a creative personality in any field,' writes Martin Kemp in a new introduction to this latest edition of Kenneth Clark's classic monograph on Leonardo's art. First published in 1939, its insight, graceful scholarship and capacity to convey excitment place it unequivocally in the great tradition of Leonardo biography that runs from Vasari's Lives. As Sir Harold Nicolson has said, 'It is so intelligent, so modest, so beautifully written and so wise.'--Back cover.

"From his early training in Florence, through the great works for which he is best known, to the supremely powerful 'Deluge' drawings of his later years, Martin Kemp gives a fully integrated picture of Leonardo's artistic, scientific, and technological achievements." "Covering all areas of his work, and illustrated throughout with over two hundred illustrations including a wide range of Leonardo's private manuscript sketches, Marvellous Works represents the ultimate introduction to this central figure in western art."--Jacket.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) possessed arguably the greatest mind the world has ever known. Artist, draftsman, inventor, and philosopher, his contributions to modern society are profound and wide-reaching. Throughout his life, Leonardo kept dozens of notebooks, elegant studies on topics ranging from architecture to botany to philosophy--indeed nearly anything of which the human imagination could conceive. This book collects a variety of the most fascinating of these studies and compiles them into one volume that demystifies his insights and clearly illustrates his ideas, experiments, and observations with hundreds of his original sketches, line drawings, and paintings. Topics include Anatomy and the Movement of the Human Figure; Botany and Landscape; Engineering and Military Engineering; Physical Sciences; Aerodynamics and Flight; Geography--and more.--From publisher description.

Leonardo on painting : an anthology of writings by Leonardo ( Book )
10 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and held by 1,128 libraries worldwide
Leonardo's writings on painting were never edited by Leonardo himself into a coherent treatise. The book known as Leonardo's Treatise on Painting, first published in 1651, comprises a compilation of quotations, described by one early translator as a "chaos of intelligence." This anthology aims to bring order into the chaos, so Leonardo's views can be read in a logical and sequential manner. The authors have edited material not only from the Treatise but also from Leonardo's surviving manuscripts and from other primary sources, some of which are here translated for the first time. Included among these are Leonardo's own letters and memoranda, letters by contemporaries, and important documents to which he was a signatory. The book begins by looking at Leonardo's general principles of painting. Then follow sections on the optical foundations of art, the human body, the appearance of nature, and the practice of painting, including instructions for the artist and evocative accounts of subject matter.--From publisher description.
