Description

Shedding light on Leonard da Vinci as human being, this e-book app analyzes the complete works of, and pages of handwritten journals by, the versatile genius da Vinci.

"Painter should be versatile otherwise he doesn't deserve praise, " Leonard da Vinci said.

That is, his enormous research, which some say the fruit of human wisdom,

was conducted just to accomplish the expression of 'painting.'

Only 13 works remain, among da Vinci's paintings.

By examining them thoroughly from every angle,

and by scrutinizing the handwritten journals da Vinci wrote down his research,

the Pen magazine reveals what this Renaissance genius drew.

* 'Pen' is art & culture magazine in Japan; 'Pen BOOKS' is a series of books compiled by the Pen magazine.

* The 'Pen BOOKS' app is only for the iPad. You cannot read it for iPhone.

* Only Japanese version
