LEONARDO DA VINCI
& The Renaissance of the World
Marwan Kahil, Ariel Vittori
One of the greatest artists of all time, as well as a genius inventor, Da Vinci was arrestingly tall and handsome. This comics bio shows the process of his work and his inventions, his persecution as a gay man and how the changing politics of his country and ebbs and flows of those in power affected him and his career. A turbulent story on an exceptional man. Complemented with back matter on his chronology, list of his oeuvres, etc…
