Chiaroscuro The Private Lives of Leonardo da Vinci Read & Download È 104 O history as Salai whom Leonardo describes as lying thieving gluttonous but who none the less spends most of his life in a complex relationship with the Maestro Along the way we encounter Machievel. I picked this up long ago now when I was researching Leonardo da Vinci and Renaissance Italy I like to supplement my research with fictional works surrounding the same topic usually because I enjoy seeing what others have done with the material That the central character of this comic series was Salai I was especially interested I was ultimately disappointed by the book The art was a miss for me and it often seemed hurried or somehow rushed It didn t grab me The writers drew from historical fact but I felt they embellished a little than they should have in many places or pushed and sensationalized the unsavoury aspects and characters to the point that it was grating I don t mind an unlikable or problematic protagonist but they pushed Salai too far into that area making him a caricature than a real character And they did the same with Leonardo In the scene where the heart of the story should have been in the ultimate tragedy as it were of Leonardo and Salai s relationship it fell absolutely flat I would not recommend it But if you are curious I would say as another reviewer said read it as historical fanfiction at best with a large helping of salt

Chiaroscuro The Private Lives of Leonardo da Vinci Read & Download È 104 The book is a compilation of a ten issue mini series which originally ran from 1995 1996 It looks at Leonardo from the view point of his ne'er do well apprentice and servant Giacomo known forever t. Things I think are awesome Vertigo which is all over the place in uality but is worth it for taking risks on ideas with good potential Leonardo da Vinci who is a term for uality and potential I eyed this comic for years before picking it up and then it sat on my shelf for ears because man I did not like the cover I still don t The Photoshopped burned out lines look tacky the image resolution is so low you can see the pixels and photographing actors in the role of characters looks silly to me when it s not stills from a film or play and see below Considering the uality of the illustration in the comic itself the cover art is preposterous The individual comic covers beyond the one used on the trade graphic novel get a little better in terms of style and layout but they still feel like an unfortunate add on rather than a complement to the workSo the worst thing about this comic is the cover art and the best thing is the phenomenal comic illustration The research for that art was amazing and most of the people look like comic illustrations of people pictured in art from the period not just in costume but also in stylistic approach to physical features The exceptions are Catherine who often looks John Tenniel drawing Looney Tunes and the glasslike psychadelically colored bird which seems to be better integrated into the art style than Catherine at least because it s clearly supposed to be fantastical and dreamstuff And perhaps that research and attention to detail for the art is what makes the cover art so awful when casting a play or film appearances can be approximated but a photograph is a bit different The people photographed as da Vinci and Salai look so much unlike the images of them that have lasted through history that well they just wind up looking like models And it s a comic Why do a crappy photomontage when you can get a good illustratorAs to the story itself rather than trying to relate the life of Leonardo or any of the other major historical figures of the period McGreal and Rawson had the wonderful idea to use the story of Salai as a vehicle for the intersections between these people From the comic I got the impression that Salai was an errand runner type assistant to Leonardo who briefly attempted out of admiration for Leonardo to make some art himself but barely got anywhere From an exceedingly brief time on Google I found almost immediately that he was also a pupil of Leonardo s and a far better artist than I am if not on Leonardo s level Artistic liberties to tell a story That always gets complicated but I have to say Salai s sole artistic attempt in the comic becomes a part of the comic s narrative on which many parts of the story seem to rest It s the difference between excluding a spouse because they re not relevant to the story and making the story rely on the main character being a swinging bachelorAlisa Kwitney the Vertigo editor for the comic says in the introduction If you want a uick way to check what s fact and what s fiction try this Anything that seems particularly outrageous it s a fact I suppose the missing part of that statement is that anything that seems less than particularly outrageous is well subject to significantly liberal rewrite I like historical fiction Things like this make the story feel like historical fanfictionSo read like historical fanfiction it s a fun story Read as historical fiction well bring your saltshakers and focus on the gorgeous artwork Justnot the covers
