||Da Vinci's reputation as an inventor and scientist, and the complexity of his personality, have sometimes almost overshadowed the importance of his aims and techniques as a painter. This is a new examination of da Vinci's career that illuminates his time as court painter to the Duke of Milan, an experience that fundamentally changed his legacy.
