Bambach, Carmen C. LEONARDO DA VINCI Rediscovered. 4 volumes: 2,350 pages with 1,500 color and b&w plates. 4to, boards in slipcase. New Haven, Yale University Press, 2019.
Internationally renowned Leonardo specialist Carmen C. Bambach unfurls new narratives, largely based on the most important, yet most misunderstood, body of evidence available: the artist's drawings, paintings, and manuscripts. In the manner of a biographer, Bambach combs through contemporary documents and more than 4,000 surviving sheets of Leonardo's notes and drawings to extract details about his development as an artist and thinker that have never before been suggested. Some 1,500 illustrations portray the staggering, spectacular legacy that Leonardo left behind on paper and canvas.
