The 2 DVD,s on the life of Leonardo are woeful. They present 'pretty' images and make assumptions on his life which are irrelavant and ,based on other intensive reading,are inaccurate.
The volumes on "The Dissenter'and "The Scientist' both narrated by Ian Richardson are worthwhile. The remaining discs ('The Prinnce' and 'The Artist') are rambling and lack cohesion.
I cannot recommend this collection.

The information is too general and superficial. A lot of words about the attitude to innovate but not enough about the actual innovations. The advantage of a DVD is that, when you do not understand something, you can rewind and watch again until you understand. Therefore I prefer more emphasis on the actual contribution of the personalities described. The level of the presentation should be above high school level. If it is well explained, it will eventually become understandable for everybody. Bad idea to have actors interpreting the attitude and thoughts of the personalities discussed; preferably to accompany the reading voice not with the image of an actor who does not look at all like the personality presented, but with pictures of the real appearance of the personality and images from the time that personality lived. I would also like to hear more about the thinking in the society and of the other artists and scientists of that time than to hear various people of our time talking in general about the pleasure and courage to come with a new idea, without any actual exemplification.

An interesting review of a period in history which leads to today's art world. It's easy to watch and understand.

I watched one segment, "The Artist," and put the set on the shelf. "The Artist," initially gave good background on Da Vinci and the period, but then only covered a few of his most influential works. Way too much was left out to get a decent picture of Da Vinci as an artist. Much time was spent on artists, such as Caravaggio, who live well after Leonardo and were not directly influenced by him. Additionally, production values were not outstanding. Not a good choice for learning about either Leonard or the period.

History is very much of interest to me as try to become more acquainted with pieces of history that I am not familiar. It seems as time passes, what I have learned in the past has become fuzzy. I like having references that I can restore sections of history that I should have remembered from my time in school. Thanks for making this section of history available.

I did learn a great deal about Leonardo da Vinci. My only complaint is the audio/video timing. I can't
tell whether it is bad lip syncing, or just poorly made. But that only pertains to the two DVD's on Leonardo.
The other four...are just fine, and are very informative as well. I enjoyed thoroughly.
