Where does one begin to describe such a legendary figure as Leonardo da Vinci? Isaacson composes the mammoth task in chronological brilliance, leading us through the twists and turns of da Vinci’s defining moments, from his birth in 1452 as the illegitimate son of a mediocre notary, to his acceptance of the irresistible invitation to the French court of Francis I, King of France in 1516.
When Leonardo of Vinci, Italy was born, the world could not have imagined the extent of his talents or the vast number of valuable contributions he would make in his lifetime. Free to be himself so far as the restraints on legitimate children, Leonardo was given the tremendous opportunity to follow his own path—a rare gift in the days of ruling nobility, limiting family obligations and unyielding cultural norms. Imagine if he had been the legitimate son of Piero da Vinci and been expected to fulfill his obligations as a notary, carrying on the family occupation. The world shudders at the thought of how much poorer we might have been for it.
