Nice effort that is pleasantly presented, it is already out of date with the glaring omission of the Salvator Mundi (not even mentioned) and the recently discovered Este portrait, which the author claims was never painted, only sketched. Still, nice photos and informed text taken for the time period. ( )

Eu realmente gostei do texto.
Dizem que é incompleto, mas isso se deve provavelmente a divergências de atribuição. ( )

Although the high-end books of Taschen have always been extremely good, I believe they have outdone themselves this time. It is a wonderful compilation of all the paintings, sketches, and drawing of Leonardo, including amazing close-ups of some of the paintings that let you really appreciate his technique and mastery. The images have excellent quality and the additional information given is also useful to put the images into historical context. I don't think I need to go into how incredible Leonardo was as a painter, engineer, etc., but you will definitely be amazed by the contents of this book. ( )
