Leonardo da Vinci is celebrated for his versatility, yet in one medium his work has received scant attention: sculpture. Produced to accompany an exhibition at the High Museum, Atlanta, this illuminating study dispels the myth that he regarded sculpture as a lesser art. With 50 colour plates and over 100 smaller figures, it juxtaposes da Vinci's achievements with work by contemporaries; while essays by leading experts discuss his efforts to acquire the necessary skills, the works that influenced him, and those he influenced in turn.
