Leonardo da Vinci is a beautiful book. The book as a whole conveys wonderful shape to Leonardo’s art and life. And Leonardo has been fortunate in some of the writers who have tackled him, like Walter Pater and like Théophile Gautier in France. And Clark is more right about aspects of his science and engineering than he has any right to be. He kept clear of the science, he didn’t really tackle it head on, yet via the art and via the drawings, he gets an enormous amount right about Leonardo’s scientific opus.

His father, Ser Piero da Vinci, held elevated status as a notary-a professional path that Leonardo would have been expected to follow had he not been born out of wedlock. The town of Vinci proffered an inspiring backdrop for a boy with a capacious vision.
