Art by Clark # 2

I feel certain that there is an absolute interdependence between the strangeness, the beauty and the scientific elaboration which strike me simultaneously when I first look at Leonardo

Leonardo’s work analyzed by one of the most important English-speaking art historians of our time.

Starting from the famous image of Virgin & St Anne, Clark explores all the main characteristics of Leonardo’s art with a style and interpretative ability intended for the general public that’s as engaging as a story.

The volume collects, in a series of color reproductions, all the works of Leonardo preserved in museums and relating to his period of activity in Florence, each with the relative technical information.

The entire biography of Leonardo written by Giorgio Vasari and published in the Lives of the most excellent painters, sculptors and architects is supplied in the appendix to the volume.
