Leonardo da Vinci
One of the greatest minds of all time.
One of the greatest minds of all time.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (1452-1519) - aka Leonardo da Vinci - hailed from the small Tuscan town of Vinci (hence, ‘da Vinci’ – meaning, cryptically, ‘from Vinci’). He was born illegitimately to a notary father and peasant woman mother.
Leonardo da Vinci was taken in by famed artist Verrocchio, who taught him the art of painting and more.
A true Renaissance Man, da Vinci was a jack of all trades and master of every one. A painter, architect, sculptor, inventor, engineer, mathematician, cartographer, geologist, botanist and even a musician, it’s no wonder da Vinci is considered one of the most comprehensively genius persons of all time.
His unique view of the world saw him apply new techniques to every field he turned his hand to. Despite having come up with inventions for an astounding array of items (think flying machines and parachutes, scuba gear, weaponry, solar power, and more), he is most well-known as being a painter.
Even with painting, he undertook many experiments with techniques. Not all were so successful however, which is why only around 15 Leonardo da Vinci paintings exist today.
The Last Supper and Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci are two of the most famous artworks ever created.
