Staff Reviews


There’s no doubt that the man who painted The Mona Lisa was a genius, and in this thoroughly satisfying account, Isaacson explores the extent of his intellect and his amazing curiosity. He illuminates Da Vinci's interest not only in painting but also in science and nature. The artist/scientist dissected cadavers to study tendons and muscles. He also studied birds in flight and drew designs for tools, machines and props for stage presentations. The most intriguing of Isaacson's explorations, however, are his descriptions of Da Vinci's paintings and the techniques he used. With various paintings he discusses perspective, shading, even the geology of the backgrounds. It is utterly fascinating.
