The significance of Leonardo da Vinci's contributions to the medium of painting are highlighted in this collection celebrating his works, including The Last Supper and The Virgin on the Rocks. This introduction avoids myths about da Vinci and presents a chronology of his life, a critical essay on his work, and selections of his drawings that support the claim that, above all other media, painting was da Vinci's primary medium. The flurry of his artistic activity and the importance of his work are showcased in this updated introduction to his life and art.
