This book looks at the sculptural projects that the artist undertook. Leonardo drew inspiration from ancient sculpture, admired the work of such contemporary sculptural innovators as Donatello, and even trained under Andrea del Verrocchio, the preeminent bronze sculptor of late 15th-century Florence. Furthermore, Leonardo spent many years of his life working on two horse sculptures – Sforza and Trivulzio – monuments to Francesco Sforza, the Duke of Milan, and to Gian Giacomo Trivulzio, his sucessor. Although neither was completed, the authors argue that these equestrian monuments show how Leonardo was engaged with the design dilemmas of representing a horse rearing on its hind legs. Another feature of the book is a group of images of the John the Baptist Preaching to a Levite and a Pharisee, a restored large-scale work in the Florentine Baptistery that demonstrates Leonardo’s collaboration with Giovanni Rustici.
