This is an auction for LEONARDO DA VINCI by Kenneth Clark.

Revised and introduced by Martin Kemp, Emeritus Professor of History of the Art at Oxford University.

This is a large format Folio Society book, in new condition, in its original slipcase. reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! This is THE classic monograph on Leonardo da Vinci, written with grace, sensitivity, and an incomparable knowledge of Leonardo's surviving works. Those who have read Kenneth Clark's "Civilization," or seen the TV series which he narrated, already have experienced his wit and intelligence. Clark's "Leonardo" first came out in 1939, then was reissued in 1959 and 1967, with the author's revisions."

"FIVE STARS!!!! Kenneth Clark's book is probably the best available introduction to Leonardo da Vinci. It is both a good biography and an insightful analysis of Leonardo's art and artistic career. The text is appropriate for both laymen and students of art history. Clark's writing is concise and extremely engaging (to the point where I would recommend reading this book for fun), but it is also intelligent and very informative."
