Inside the mind of a Renaissance genius - unravel the mystery This fascinating exploration of Leonardo da Vinci's life and work identifies what it was that made him so unique and explains the phenomenon of the world's most celebrated genius who, 500 years on, still grips and inspires us. Martin Kemp offer us exceptional insights into what it was that made this Renaissance man so special, and the 'real' meaning behind such masterpieces as The Mona Lisa and the Last Supper. Tracing Leonardo's career in all its variety, we learn of his unfulfilled dreams, relationships with powerful patrons, and the truth about his religious views. Kemp shows that it is the famous notebooks that reveal both the secret of Leonardo's success and genius as they clearly show how his mind worked and display the truly innovative and investigative nature of his creative vision. Over 20,000 pages of drawings and notes detail Leonardo's incredible discoveries and inventions from the workings of the human eye to designs for flying machines and robots. Bringing the story of Leonardo up to the present day, Martin Kemp considers what he means to us today, investigates the 'Leonardo industry', and speculates about what he would he be doing if he were alive today?.
