Product description

From Booklist

Award-winning biographer Nicholl takes a marvelously fresh and human approach to the fascinating life of Leonardo. Evincing delight in the vicissitudes of scholarly sleuthing and a love of literature, Nicholl, who has a gift for spotting overlooked gems, offers a unique focus on the language in Leonardo's famous notebooks. He is also unusually eloquent in his recognition of the importance of Leonardo's country boyhood and the resulting visual lexicon and "ecologically compassionate view of nature" (he eventually became a vegetarian) that underlie all of his work, from his finely detailed drawings and paintings to his fascination with flight. Nicholl carefully explicates Leonardo's musicality, habit of inquisitiveness, love of technology, and artistic practices and renowned works. He also happily extracts evidence of Leonardo's affection for various boyfriends, particularly a man whose nickname, Salai, translates as "Little Devil," and argues convincingly that Leonardo enjoyed a liaison with one of his beautiful female models. In sum, Nicholl portrays a far more complex and appealing man than the chilly word genius usually suggests. Donna Seaman
