It will also show why it cannot be understood without his art, nor his art without the science. As a scientist and author, I depart in this book from my usual work. At the same time, however, it has been a deeply satisfying book to write, as I have been fascinated by Leonardo da Vinci’s scientific work for over three decades.

A portrait is typically defined as a representation of a specific individual, such as the artist might meet in life. A portrait does not merely record someone’s features, however, but says something about who he or she is, offering a vivid sense of a real person’s presence.

Some biographers are perfectly comfortable composing a full-body portrait based solely on a few faint footprints. Consider the legions who have tackled Shakespeare. Isaacson does not seem to be that kind of writer.
