March Book of the Month! Leonardo da Vinci: The Complete Paintings and Drawings

LeonardodaVinciLeonardo da Vinci: The Complete Paintings and Drawings

This is the next best thing to actually seeing da Vinci’s paintings in person. It’s a large book so all of the pictures are blown up to an amazing scale. There are full pages devoted to a nose or a foot and you can see how complex each part is. Along with the art, there is text that illustrates the life of Leonardo da Vinci and describes his artwork and inventions. The book is nicely broken up into time periods that help explain his style. This is one of my favorite books because you are able to see every detail in his artwork, and you are able to get a better idea of him as an artist.

The Archives & Special Collections is open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:00-3:00 p.m. or by appointment.
