2019 is a marker for Rembrandt van Rijn, and Leonardo da Vinci anniversaries, two of the most remarkable men, respected in their lifetimes as sublime painters.
I have books published on both Leonardo and Rembrandt:
The Life and Works of Leonardo da Vinci, Lorenz Publishing 2017;
Rembrandt: His Life and Works in 500 Images, Lorenz Publishing, 2012.
For current features I have written on Leonardo, and Rembrandt , now published - see this front page. For gardener-art lovers, the pink floribunda rose on the carrousel above, is called 'Leonardo da Vinci'. It's unperfumed but strong, a bit like Leonardo. This is the 500th annniversary of his death in Amboise, France, which is where i saw this rose.
