Description
Illustrated throughout with hundreds of colour and sepia reproductions of paintings and drawings, comprehensive introductions to the life and works of the greatest of Renaissance masters: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) and Michelangelo (1475-1564). Explores the artists’ early life, artistic influences and commissions, while also analysing technique and their wide-ranging interests as their careers progressed. For Leonardo, illustrations of his drawings are set alongside his paintings to survey his polymath interests as an engineer, scientist and architect; considering his studies of everything from human anatomy and the natural world to designs for bridges, buildings and machines. Michelangelo’s work as a painter and sculptor is considered with colourful illustrations and set within the context of the emergence of Mannerism. Each book also includes a ‘Gallery’ section to present many key paintings and artworks in historical context and to show the development of the artists’ work.
