April 15 Birthday – Leonardo da Vinci, LEONARDO’S HORSE

Leonardo da Vinci, artist, inventor
Apr. 15 1452 – May 2, 1519

Leonardo’s Horse by Jean Fritz, illustrated by Hudson Talbott (Putnam Juvenille, 2001).

Possibly one of Leonardo da Vinci’s greatest regrets was not completing a bronze horse statue for the duke of Milan’s father. This book tells the story of how that original vision from one of the greatest renaissance artists was finally completed by another sculptor over five hundred years later. An extraordinary tribute to Leonardo da Vinci and his life’s work.
