            Shortly after completing his searing work of non-fiction, The Return, Hisham Matar set off for Siena, a city he had never visited before. His plan was to see the paintings of the Sienese school, to immerse himself in the work of artists he admired perhaps above all others. This m...onth in Siena would be an extraordinary period in the life of this writer: an immersion in art, a consideration of grief and violence, an intimate encounter with the city and its inhabitants. Hisham Matar's short book is the story of how art can console and disturb in equal measure. It is a profoundly moving contemplation of the relationship between art and the human condition.

            Leonardo da Vinci's drawings are among the most accomplished and technically varied ever made. Detailed study of those in the Royal Collection - the finest group in existence - reveals much about his materials and techniques and his innovative approach to drawing. This ground-bre...aking book explores a substantial number of Leonardo's most celebrated drawings in unprecedented detail. Using specialist microscopic photography it will open up a new understanding and appreciation of Leonardo's techniques and present new information on his materials, uncovering features invisible to the naked eye. In addition, infrared images bring to light the artist's first touches (including Leonardo's own thumbprint, show in the detail below) and under-drawings, many of which have not been seen for 500 years.
