Leonardo da Vinci: origins of a genius User Review - Not Available - Book Verdict. In an effort to understand the developmental processes that culminate in mature works, researchers have long focused on the early years of the creative genius. Leonardo despises Michelangelo for his youth and lack of sophistication. Michelangelo both loathes and worships Leonardo\'s genius. Oil and Marble is the story of their nearly forgotten rivalry. Storey brings early 16th-century Florence alive, and has entered with extraordinary empathy into the minds and souls of two Renaissance masters.
