    Leonardo Da Vinci: Renaissance Humanist, Naturalist, Artist, Scientist
    Who Was Leonardo Da Vinci? Leonardo Da Vinci, usually just thought of as an artist, is terribly misused in Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code . The real Leonardo was a scientist and naturalist. Gallery Index Image of Self Portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo Da Vinci, born in the village of Vinci in Tuscany, Italy, on April 15, 1452, was one of the most important artistic figures of the Renaissance; his skill and ability to elicit so much emotion with a few simple lines is almost unparalleled in the history of art. While people may realize that he as an important artist, though, they don't generally realize how important he was as an early skeptic, naturalist, materialist, and scientist. There is no evidence that he was an atheist, but he is a role model in how to approach both scientific and artistic problems from a naturalistic, skeptical perspective. Leonardo Da Vinci believed that a good artist must also be a good scientist in order to best understand and describe nature. Guided by the conviction that nature always takes the shortest path, he developed early theorems of inertia, action/reaction, and force. None was as developed as those made famous by Descartes and Newton, but they demonstrate his involvement with science as well as the degree to which he placed empirical data and science above faith and revelation. This was why Leonardo was such a strong skeptic, casting doubt on many of the popular pseudosciences of his day - especially astrology, for example.

    Leonardo, born in Vinci, Italy, possessed a genius which went far beyond simply being a remarkable artist. He was, perhaps, the first European interested in a practical solution to flight. Leonardo designed a multitude of mechanical devices, including parachutes, and studied the flight of birds as well as their structure. About 1485 he drew detailed plans for a human-powered ornithopter (a wing-flapping device intended to fly). There is no evidence that he actually attempted to build such a device, although the image he presented was a powerful one. The notion of a human-powered mechanical flight device, patterned after birds or bats, recurred again and again over the next four centuries.

    Leonardo The First Scientist by Michael White Leonardo Art and Science edited by Claudio Pescio Leonardo by Martin Kemp Leonardo da Vinci by Sherwin B.
    Leonardo da Vinci
    From Leonardo: Art and Science edited by Claudio Pescio
    In one of his notebooks, Leonardo da Vinci saw fit to copy lines from Dante's Inferno Lying in a featherbed will not bring you fame, nor staying beneath the quilt, and he who uses up his life without achieving fame leaves no more vestige of himself on earth than smoke in the air or foam upon the water. Da Vinci lived at a time of amazing cultural change. Gutenberg invented movable type when da Vinci was a child. When the Renaissance genius was born, Europe had roughly 30,000 printed books; by the time he reached middle age, it had an estimated 8 million. In a way, da Vinci's own library mirrored this explosion. When he left Florence for Milan, the savant's packing list didn't mention a single book. Months after arriving in Milan, he owned five. Shortly after the turn of the 16th century, he owned well over 100. Unfortunately, though he eventually owned quite a few books, da Vinci wrote few of them. He failed to complete many of the projects he started and worse, because he was paranoid about his ideas being stolen, he kept his copious notes to himself. After his death, many of his notebooks were lost, scattered, and pieced back together in haphazard fashion.
    From The Naming of Names by Anna Pavord
    Among his many scientific achievements were da Vinci's discoveries in anatomy. Besides artistic talent, he possessed the "stomach" to dissect of both humans and animals. Dissections weren't common in da Vinci's day, but probably weren't illegal, either. Though his understanding of the respiratory system added little to medieval knowledge, his studies of skeletal and muscle tissue, brain anatomy, and digestive and reproductive systems advanced human anatomical understanding to a new level. Interestingly, he felt that the similar appearance of branching blood vessels, branching stems, and mingling tributaries weren't just coincidence; the actually were fundamentally the same. In that same spirit of unified microcosm/macrocosm, he investigated geology.

    Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo DA VINCI (b. 1452, Vinci, Republic of Florence [now in Italy]d. May 2, 1519, Cloux, Fr.), Italian painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect, and engineer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. His Last Supper (1495-97) and Mona Lisa (1503-06) are among the most widely popular and influential paintings of the Renaissance.

    L eonardo da V inci (1452-1519) It may seem unusual to include Leonardo da Vinci in a list of paleontologists and evolutionary biologists. Leonardo was and is best known as an artist, the creator of such masterpieces as the Mona Lisa Madonna of the Rocks , and The Last Supper . Yet Leonardo was far more than a great artist: he had one of the best scientific minds of his time. He made painstaking observations and carried out research in fields ranging from architecture and civil engineering to astronomy to anatomy and zoology to geography, geology and paleontology. In the words of his biographer Giorgio Vasari: The most heavenly gifts seem to be showered on certain human beings. Sometimes supernaturally, marvelously, they all congregate in one individual. . . . This was seen and acknowledged by all men in the case of Leonardo da Vinci, who had. . . an indescribable grace in every effortless act and deed. His talent was so rare that he mastered any subject to which he turned his attention. . . . He might have been a scientist if he had not been so versatile. Leonardo's scientific and technical observations are found in his handwritten manuscripts, of which over 4000 pages survive, including the one pictured on the right, showing some rock formations (click on it to view an enlargement). It seems that Leonardo planned to publish them as a great encyclopedia of knowledge, but like many of his projects, this one was never finished. The manuscripts are difficult to read: not only did Leonardo write in mirror-image script from right to left, but he used peculiar spellings and abbreviations, and his notes are not arranged in any logical order. After his death his notes were scattered to libraries and collections all over Europe. While portions of Leonardo's technical treatises on painting were published as early as 1651, the scope and caliber of much of his scientific work remained unknown until the 19th century. Yet his geological and paleontological observations and theories foreshadow many later breakthroughs.

    Leonardo da Vinci
    (LEONARDO DI SER PIERO DA VINCI) Florentine painter sculptor architect , engineer, and scholar, and one of the greatest minds of the Renaissance ; born at Vinci, near Florence , in 1452; died at Cloux, near Amboise, France , 2 May, 1519, natural son of Ser Piero, a notary , and a peasant woman . He was reared carefully by his father , and was remarkably gifted and precocious. Few artists owed so little to circumstances and teachers. He was quite self-made. His work was small in bulk, and what remains may be counted on fingers of both hands. Few men had such varied talent and amassed such encyclopedic knowledge ; his method as an artist was original with him, science was the measure of beauty, he combined fact with poetry and made use of both to carry on wide investigations in nature and to reproduce life according to the very laws of life. There are three periods in Leonardo's biography: The Florentine period (1469-82); the Milanese period (1483-99); the Nomadic period (1500-19).

A painter, a sculptor, an architect and an engineer, Leonardo Da Vinci's numerous skills have earned him the title of renaissance master. Da Vinci's fascination with science and his in-depth study of human anatomy aided him in mastering the realist art form. While Leonardo's counterparts were known to create static figures in their works, Leonardo always tried to incorporate movement and expression into his own paintings. All the personages in his works are painted with great accuracy and detail that it is sometimes said that Da Vinci painted from the bones outward. Having lived until the age of 67, Leonardo experienced a very long career that was filled with times during which the painter was celebrated, but at times he was also humiliated and cast away. His life experiences all influenced his works and often, his paintings never left the sketchpad, or were only partially completed, as Leonardo often abandoned his commissions in order to flee from social situations.
