"Leonardo was a great artist, but he became famous because he was able to do so many other things, too. He was an architect, a musician, sculptor, scientist, inventor, and mathematician."
This biography introduces Da Vinci in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Da Vinci, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion.
