4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book on Da Vinci's works, 22 May 2002
By 
Aaron Gatt Floridia (Houston, TX United States) - See all my reviews
This is definitely the best illustrated book on Leonardo's works that I have seen to date. Some of the close up photos are outstanding and the text is written in a professional but readable style.
I enjoyed the chapter dealing with the restoration works on the Last Supper and the chapter dealing with portraits makes excellent reading.
I was a little disappointed with the rather thin coverage of his later works especially The Virgin and Saint Anne although once again the picture quality is superb.
The focus of the book is clearly Leonardo's paintings as opposed to his life but I would recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy his work through a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luxurious seminal work on Leonardo da Vinci, 23 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This is surely one of the best and most luxurious art monographs ever produced. It contains the complete (and that reads COMPLETE) paintings of the italian master, including a huge array of preparatory studies and sketches. Any serious art lover will recognise that the detail and quality of the reproductions is unsurpassed by any other art book on da Vinci, with delightful images of the old favourites (Annunciation, Gioconda, etc). This book contains none of that same old dusty stock photography but lots of fresh specially commissioned images that show the classics in a new favourable light. It even contains a beautiful image of Last Supper in all its recently restored glory. This is definitely a book every art lover and da Vinci fan should have in their collection, if not in pride of place on the coffee table!

This review is from: Leonardo Da Vinci: The Complete Paintings (Paperback)
Like an accompanying book of drawings I bought, this book is of relatively small size to be displaying Da Vinci's work. However, I think it is still a satisfying introduction to the awesome magic of his art. Those wonderful flesh tones! The cover detail alone should rouse enough enthusiasm for you to want to own this book. The price is very reasonable!
