History Hub presents a brief biography of Leonardo Da Vinci from beginning to end, whose remarkable story impacts our lives even today. On April 15, 1492, Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the town of Vinci. His parents were Ser Piero, a legal official, and Caterina, a peasant. His father brought Da Vinci, who was born out of wedlock, into his home, when he was three. Da Vinci went to study under Andrea del Verrocchio in 1467 when he was fifteen. Like any apprentice, he needed to perform necessary errands at first, nearly as a servant would. Later, Da Vinci was able to prepare pigments and canvases on his own; at that point, he had drawn Verrocchio's works and different models. While Da Vinci was mastering painting, he also started researching anatomy and even learned how to dissect corpses. In 1500, Leonardo went to Venice where a war with the Ottoman Empire was at its height. The 1499 French invasion of Lombardy and the House of Sforza's counter-attack involved a significant part of the Mediterranean coast in the battle. Da Vinci went to the Senate of Venice and volunteered to become an engineer. He wanted to build a dam that would permit Venetian powers to bring the Turks into the Isonzo river valley to flood the gateway, effectively annihilating the enemy's forces. However, his proposal was ignored. Mona Lisa and The Last Supper are Da Vinci's most renowned artworks.On the other hand, his last painting, Saint John the Baptist, was completed in Rome, but it is one of the least well-known. In April 1519, Da Vinci wrote his will and on May 2 of the same year died at the age of 67. Discover in this short yet concise biography the remarkable story of a life who impacted future generations. This book also contains 30 questions for an in-depth discussion into the life of Leonardo Da Vinci. Download your copy now on sale Read on your PC, Mac, iOS or Android smartphone, tablet devices.

Many great works of art have been created that we call "Christian," but none has received as much acclaim as Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. Art lovers venerate it for its composition and noble aesthetics, whereas, for Christians, it epitomizes the intimacy between Christ and his disciples. In recent years--following the publication of bestselling fictional narratives and dubious historical studies--The Last Supper has also become the focus of intrigue, controversy, speculation, and sensation. Recent restoration of the painting has exposed remnants of the original work and removed falsifications created by over-painting. Thus, for the first time since its creation more than five hundred years ago, we can contemplate Da Vinci's masterpiece in its more or less original form. This lavishly illustrated, full-color book reproduces many details of the restored work, and the author turns our attention to newly revealed aspects of The Last Supper that lead to fresh interpretations. The philosopher Rudolf Steiner called The Last Supper the world's most important work of art, adding that it revealed "the meaning of Earth existence." Michael Ladwein sheds light on many aspects of the spiritual facts that can be uncovered in this immortal painting--one that has lost nothing of its urgency in our modern world.

A masterly account of the genius of Leonardo da Vinci and his vision of the world, generously illustrated throughout, presenting a fully integrated picture of Leonardo's art, science, and thought. Widely recognized as a classic, this fully updated new edition includes a new introduction setting Leonardo's life and work in its wider historical context. - ;This masterly account of Leonardo da Vinci and his vision of the world is now widely recognized as the classic treatment of Leonardo's art, science, and thought, giving an unparalleled insight into the broadening and deepening of Leonardo's intellect and vision throughout his artistic career. Kemp, one of the world's leading authorities on Leonardo, takes us on a journey through the whole span of the great man's career, giving a fully integrated picture of his artistic, scientific, and technological achievements. Leonardo's early training in Florence provided a crucial foundation in the 'science of art', particularly perspective and anatomy. His period in the service of the Sforzas of Milan enlarged his outlook to embrace a wide range of natural sciences and mathematics, as he searched for scientific rules governing both man and the universe. It was these rules which provided the basis for his imaginative reconstruction of nature in great works such as the Last Supper, the Mona Lisa, and St John, which reveal his increasingly complex vision of man in the context of nature. And towards the end of his life, Leonardo became fascinated with the mathematics underlying the 'design of nature', behind which lay the ultimate force of the 'prime mover', as manifested with supreme power in his Deluge drawings. Covering all areas of Leonardo's achievement, generously illustrated, and now including a new introductory chapter setting Leonardo's work in its historical context, this fully updated new edition provides an unparalleled insight into the marvellous works of this central figure in western art. - ;Masterful... his analysis of Leonardo holds great value... because it refuses to separate out the artist's diverse skills and achievements. - Art Quarterly
