A novel of Leonardo da Vinci - visionary painter of the Mona Lisa, the smiling, enigmatic Gioconda. We know him as the Renaissance genius: inventor, scientist, artist. They knew him as Leonardo from Vinci: heretic, butcher, lunatic. A solitary child, Leonardo's only intimate is Lisa Gherardini, the girl who spies on him in his workshop. Spurned by his tutor, he is sent by his despairing father to Florence as an apprentice. Under the guiding hand of Verrocchio, the master sculptor, he begins to make his name. But success requires sacrifice. Florence demands a level of conformity impossible for him. Forced to leave, Leonardo places himself at the service of the charismatic, power-thirsty Duke of Milan. His journey leads him back to Lisa and the portrait he has waited so long to paint, the culmination of his life's work...

    " Enjoyed. "Read" this via audio book. Made me want to learn/see more of the doings of Leonardo De Vinci. Very fictional, loosely based, but possible, story line...gives a flavour of the background and the person. "

    " An involving fictional account of Leonardo's life up to the painting of the Mona Lisa. It can be hard to remember that da Vinci was a human like the rest of us. This novel underlines that fact, but also highlights the unique world view of the artist. Recommended. "
