Leonardo Da Vinci, Thoughts on Art and Life (256 pp.)Leonardo Da Vinci, one of the great geniuses of mankind, has left an everlasting memory of his presence with his paintings and drawings of his discoveries and inventions, ranging from medicine to mechanics, flying machines and weapons, some of which are too advanced even for our era! His ingenuity continues to puzzles many. However, this volume, that brings together his recorded views (in the form of aphorisms or short essays), allows for a better understanding of his personality through a closer examination of his thoughts on life, art and science. Lewis Einstein’s extensive introduction illustrates further the man and the turbulent but also stimulating times he lived in, while a short but comprehensive bibliographical note offers further opportunities for readers who would wish to learn more about this fascinating man!
