Review quote

..".Witty, penetrating and fetchingly romantic.... Charles Nicholl's Leonardo Da Vinci isn't merely a lovely book, it's Leonardoesque. Leonardo knew how to make drawings and paintings glow with lyrical mystery. At its best, Nicholl's book glows too. --The New York Times Book Review"[A] deeply researched, engaging and illuminating biography... masterfully woven together." The Washington Post
