More iconic images accrue to the name of Leonardo da Vinci than to any other artist. The "Mona Lisa" stands as a sort of primary visual signifier for "Art" itself, just as his drawing of Vitruvian Man stands as a primary visual signifier for "Man." This new da Vinci monograph presents this ultimate Renaissance man's complete corpus, from the most renowned oil paintings such as "Lady with an Ermine," "Virgin of the Rocks" and "Mona Lisa" to frescoes such as "The Last Supper" in Santa Maria delle Grazie Church and the ceiling frescoes of the Sala delle Asse in Castello Sforzesco in Milan. All works are reproduced in full-color plates, many of them augmented with detail plates that reveal the extraordinary care lavished by the artist upon his canvases. Also included are da Vinci's preparatory drawings and cartoons; works no longer extant, such as "The Battle of Anghiari," are enumerated as part of the da Vinci corpus. Affordably priced and superbly produced, this volume offers a basic da Vinci monograph for all. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was born in Florence and studied with the renowned painter Verrocchio, qualifying as a "master" at the age of 20 in 1472. After his apprenticeship he worked for Ludovico il Moro, later moving to Rome, Bologna and Venice before settling in France, where his final three years were spent in the service of François I.

Dieser dritte Band der dreiteiligen Sforza-Serie beschäftigt sich erneut mit einem sehr interessanten weiblichen Mitglied dieser berühmten mailändischen Dynastie, der neapolitanischen Königstochter Isabella von Aragon (1470-1524), die auf ihrem ersten offiziellen Porträt als Herzogin von Mailand leider im Laufe der Geschichte von den Kunsthistorikern zur florentinischen Kaufmannsfrau „Mona Lisa“ degradiert wurde. Da half auch nicht, dass ihr Hofmaler Leonardo da Vinci sie, als er ihr Porträt im Frühling 1489 erstellte, in dem Trauerkleid der mailändischen Herzoginnen, welches jene in der zweiten Phase anlässlich des Todes eines Mitgliedes ihrer Familie anlegten, darstellte und sie noch zusätzlich mit wichtigen Symbolen ihrer Dynastie schmückte. Dabei gehörte Isabella von Aragon zu den berühmtesten adligen Damen der italienischen Renaissance. Nur von ihrer Großmutter Bianca Maria Visconti und ihrer Cousine und Schwägerin Caterina Sforza sind im 15. und 16. Jahrhundert so viele Porträts erstellt worden wie von ihr. Als einzige Frau fand sie zudem in dem im 16. Jahrhundert sehr geschätzten Werk von Paolo Giovio († 1552), dem „Vitae virorum illustrium“, in dem nur das Leben berühmter Männer der Renaissance beschrieben wurde, Eingang, da sie laut des Autors ihr großes Unglück wie ein Mann ertragen habe. Über ihr Privatleben sind nach dem Tod ihres ersten Gatten, des mailändischen Herzogs Gian Galeazzo II. Maria Sforza, im Jahr 1494 und ihrer Absetzung als Herzogin von Mailand durch ihren Onkel Lodovico Maria il Moro Sforza im Jahr 1495 kaum noch schriftliche Aufzeichnungen zu finden. Es bietet sich jedoch noch eine andere Möglichkeit an, dieser berühmten Dame auf die Spur zu kommen: die spezifische Symbolik ihrer Dynastie, mit der sie von ihren zeitgenössischen Malern in ihren Darstellungen reichlich versehen wurde. Diese bildlichen zeitgenössischen Quellen, die bisher leider von den Historikern vollkommen übersehen worden sind, liefern uns nicht nur weitere Informationen über Isabella von Aragon, sondern auch über ihren geliebten Hofmaler und besten Freund Leonardo da Vinci, der seit 1497 eine sehr wichtige Rolle in ihrem Leben einnehmen sollte.
