• Leonardo da Vinci – Rediscovered

    Carmen C Bambach

    This is a tremendous new publication, gloriously produced with 1,500 illustrations across 2,200 pages, and consists of four volumes in a slipcase. It presents an authoritative reassessment of Leonardo’s life, work and legacy by Carmen Bambach, the curator at the Met behind groundbreaking exhibitions on Leonardo (2003) and Michelangelo (2018). Her research included combing through 4,000 sheets of Leonardo’s notes and drawings to consider his development with a fresh and historically accurate eye. The new research, insights, scholarship and outstanding production values make this book stand apart from any other on Leonardo to date.
