1 Leonardo da Vinci - TouchInside
Auteur : TouchInside
Genre : Art & Architecture
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519, Old Style) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. According to art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and "his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote". Marco Rosci points out, however, that while there is much specu

Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson’s New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed The Innovators is a “riveting, propulsive, and at times deeply moving” (The Atlantic) story of the people who created the computer and the Internet.

24 Leonardo - Antonio Forcellino & Lucinda Byatt
Auteur : Antonio Forcellino & Lucinda Byatt
Genre : Art History
A visionary scientist, a supreme painter, a man of eccentricity and ambition: Leonardo da Vinci had many lives. Born from a fleeting affair between a country girl and a young notary, Leonardo was never legitimized by his father and received no formal education. While this freedom from the routine of rigid and codified learning may have served to stimulate his natural creativity, it also caused many years of suffering and an insatiable need to prove his own worth. It was a striving for glory and an obsessive thirst for knowledge that prompted Leonardo to seek the protection and favour of the most powerful figures of his day, from Lorenzo de’ Medici to Ludovico Sforza, from the French governors of Milan to the pope in Rome, where he could vie for renown with Michelangelo and Raphael.

In this revelatory account, Antonio Forcellino draws on his expertise – both as historian a

25 Leonardo da Vinci - Anna Abraham
Auteur : Anna Abraham
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Leonardo da Vinci personified the Renaissance, the extraordinary age in which he lived. Best known as one of the world's greatest painters, he sketched the foundations for inventions that would not come to fruition for centuries.

Born a bastard in a hillside village in northern Italy, Leonardo became the protege of princes, popes, and kings. He mastered so many branches of science that scholars still debate whether he was greater as an anatomist, botanist, cartographer, engineer, geographer, or naturalist.

Nevertheless, he died unhappy, believing he had failed to work the miracles of which he had dreamed. Here is his extraordinary story.

Auteur : Vittorio Sgarbi
Genre : Art & Architecture
“Perché sentiamo Leonardo così vicino e così presente? Perché è un artista imperfetto. La sua indubbia genialità lo rende diverso da chiunque altro, però la sua è una diversità che non comporta lontananza e distacco. È vicino a noi, prossimo agli uomini che non sono geni assoluti, perché il suo è un continuo tentativo di capire il mondo, sperimentando. Leonardo è stato ogni cosa: scrittore, architetto, scultore, pittore; ma sebbene di lui vi siano immagini innumerevoli, non si conoscono i suoi progetti architettonici e le sue sculture. In lui il tentativo è stato sempre più forte della realizzazione delle cose. La pittura è il momento più pieno di questa carriera incompleta, frammentaria e divisa, che lo rende così vicino alla sensibilità contemporanea. L’artista ha un’anima che vive nell’estensione di sé che è il suo dipinto, così il pensiero di Leonardo vi

His Master has been working on the Last Supper, his greatest painting ever, for nearly two years. But has he finished it? He's barely started! The all-powerful Duke of Milan is demanding that it be completed by the time the Pope visits at Easter. And Giacomo knows that if Leonardo doesn't pick up his pace, the Duke may invite a young genius -- Michelangelo -- to finish the painting instead.

Auteur : Keith Devlin
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
In this short e-book (about 14,000 words), Stanford mathematician and NPR's "Math Guy" Keith Devlin Ph.D. presents the fascinating similarities between 13th Century mathematician Leonardo of Pisa, more commonly known as Fibonacci, and Steve Jobs, the 20th Century founder of Apple computers.

In 1202, 32-year old Italian Leonardo of Pisa finished one of the most influential books of all time, which introduced modern arithmetic to Western Europe. Devised in India in the 7th and 8th centuries and brought to North Africa by Muslim traders, the Hindu-Arabic system helped transform the West into the dominant force in science, technology, and commerce, leaving behind Muslim cultures which had long known it but had failed to see its potential. Leonardo had learned the Hindu number system when he traveled to North Africa with his father, a customs agent. The book he created was Liber Ab
