This is the first book dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci’s commission for The Virgin of the Rocks. Leonardo completed fewer than twenty paintings in his lifetime, yet he returned twice to this same mysterious subject over the course of a twenty-five year period. Identical in terms of iconography, stylistically these paintings are worlds apart. The first, of c.1482-4, was Leonardo’s magnum opus, catapulting the young artist from obscurity to fame. When, in 1508, he finished the second painting, he was nearing the end of his artistic career and had become an international celebrity. Why did he revisit The Virgin of the Rocks? What was the meaning behind the cavernous subterranean landscape? What lies behind the colder monumentality of the second version? This book opens up Leonardo’s world, setting the scene in Republican Florence and the humanist court of the Milanese warlord Ludovico Sforza, to answer these questions. Through lyrical yet scholarly analyses of Leonardo’s paintings, notebooks and technical experimentation, it unveils the secret realms of human dissection and Neo-Platonic philosophy that inspired the creation of the two masterpieces. In doing so, the book reveals that The Virgin of the Rocks holds the key to the greatest philosophical, scientific and personal transformations of Leonardo’s life.

A quick internet search will yield results of Leonardo da Vinci's legendary paintings; the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper; and you might even catch a glimpse of his well-known sketches of machines; human bodies; and animals. However; there's so much more to da Vinci than his paintings and drawings. This 16th-century Italian man embodied the Renaissance spirit -- he was intensely interested in everyone and everything. His curiosity spanned every discipline; from geometry to anatomy to the link between art and science. 500 years ago was a time of insight; of investigation; and in this sense; da Vinci fit in perfectly. However; in another sense; he didn't belong at all -- he was a loner living in his own world. An illegitimate child with 17 half-siblings; Leonardo also shrouded himself in secrecy. He wrote in a mirror script; meaning that you could only understand what he had written by holding it up to a mirror. He believed that we all have potential to do amazing things; but he also had lots of unfinished projects and struggled with lifelong self-doubt. Delve in to these pages to find out why Leonardo di Ser Piero d'Antonio di Ser Piero di Ser Guido da Vinci -- yes; this was his full name -- was as mysterious as his painting of Mona Lisa's famous smile.
