Leonardo da Vinci : A Mind in Motion
The companion book to the exhibition at the British Library which explores the importance of motion in Leonardo's art and thought.
Written by leading Leonardo experts from London and Florence, and accompanying a major British Library exhibition, this fascinating new book reveals the central importance of motion in Leonardo's art and thought.
Large-scale reproductions of Leonardo's handwritten notes include clear illustrations of dozens of pages from Codex Arundel, alongside other manuscripts and paintings. Leonardo's ingenious, cutting-edge ideas about the art and physics of motion - the dynamics of motion in water; movement of the human form; and motion as a force in artistic composition - are explained in a clear and accessible form as never before.
