A true Renaissance man, da Vinci was active in fields as diverse as astronomy, painting, sculpture, science, mathematics, engineering, cartography, and architecture. His painting was based on a deep understanding of the workings of the human body and the physics of light and shade. Here, in full and in stunning full-page close-up details, are the mere two dozen works that are attributed to the Florentine master, along with clear, insightful text by art historian Stefano Zuffi.
