The Last Supper , one of da Vinci's most famous paintings.
Leonardo da Vinci was a supreme example of a Renaissance genius who possessed one of the greatest minds of all times.
Da Vinci was born April 15, 1452, and died May 2, 1519. He would wear pink to make his complexion look fresher. Leonardo never attended public school. He was raised by his single father. When Leonardo was fifteen he joined the studio af Andrea del Verrocchio in Florence. Leonardo had no interest in women; he spent most of his time painting. Five years later he became a member of the guild of St. Luke, a painters' guild in Florence. Four years later he worked as an independent artist at his own studio in Florence.
In 1483 he started to paint the first version of the Virgin. He finished it in 1485. In 1495 he made a clay model for the statue of Francesco Forza, and put it on display. In 1486 he began to explore human flight. In 1500 he went to Mantua.
Da Vinci studied philosophy, natural history, anatomy, biology, medicine, optics, acoustics, science, mathematics and hydraulics.
Da Vinci was an architect, musician, engineer, scientist and inventor. He sketched the first parachute, first helicopter, first aeroplane, first tank, first repeating rifle, swinging bridge, paddle boat and first motor car. Da Vinci designed machines of war as well. He was one of the first artists to sketch outdoor portraits. Da Vinci was a sculptor and designer of costumes. He was also a mathematician and a botanist.

Print this section Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), Florentine artist, one of the great masters of the High Renaissance, celebrated as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, and scientist. His profound love of knowledge and research was the keynote of both his artistic and scientific endeavors. His innovations in the field of painting influenced the course of Italian art for more than a century after his death, and his scientific studies—particularly in the fields of anatomy, optics, and hydraulics—anticipated many of the developments of modern science.

Early Life in Florence
Print this section Leonardo was born in the small town of Vinci, in Tuscany (Toscana), near Florence. He was the son of a wealthy Florentine notary and a peasant woman. In the mid-1460s the family settled in Florence, where Leonardo was given the best education that Florence, a major intellectual and artistic center of Italy, could offer. He rapidly advanced socially and intellectually. He was handsome, persuasive in conversation, and a fine musician and improviser. About 1466 he was apprenticed as a

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) needs no introduction; if there is anyone who seems to embody the Renaissance completely and totally, it is this grouchy and self-centered painter, scholar, inventor, scientist, writer, anatomist, etc. He seems to span the whole of human knowledge as it was known at the time, and combine all this knowledge into this one vast, syncretic whole. So encompassing was his artistic and intellectual accomplishment, that the life and work of Leonardo traditionally marks the beginning of what historians call the High Renaissance
La Gioconda Mona Lisa The Last Supper , and The Virgin of the Rocks The Last Supper , painted in oils on plaster on the wall of the refrectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, has weathered the years very poorly and is nearly unrecognizable, for oils fare very poorly on plaster. It is justly famous, for it is one of the most complex paintings in the Western tradition in depicting a variety of psychological reactions and internal states all focussed on a single, non-reacting center, the figure of Jesus of Nazareth. In the bewildering variety of reactions immediately following Jesus's announcement of his coming betrayal, Leonardo in visual terms manifests what Pico della Mirandola and others were saying about the variety and unpredictability of human beings.
The Virgin of the Rocks

49. Inventor Leonardo Da Vinci Biography
Fascinating facts about leonardo da vinci, whose innovations anticipated many of the developments of modern science.
Leonardo da Vinci Inventor: Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci Criteria: Architect, sculptor, engineer, painter, scientist, and inventor. Birth: April 15, 1452 in the small town of Vinci, in Tuscany, Italy Death: May 2, 1519 in Cloux, near Amboise, France Nationality: Italian In 1478 Leonardo became an independent master. His first commission, to paint an altarpiece for the chapel of the Palazzo Vecchio, the Florentine town hall, was never executed. His first large painting, The Adoration of the Magi (begun 1481, Uffizi), left unfinished, was ordered in 1481 for the Monastery of San Donato a Scopeto, Florence. Other works ascribed to his youth are the so-called Benois Madonna (1478?, Hermitage, Saint Petersburg), the portrait Ginevra de' Benci (1474?, National Gallery, Washington, D.C.), and the unfinished Saint Jerome (1481?, Pinacoteca, Vatican). About 1482 Leonardo entered the service of the duke of Milan, Ludovico Sforza, having written the duke an astonishing letter in which he stated that he could build portable bridges; that he knew the techniques of constructing bombardments and of making cannons; that he could build ships as well as armored vehicles, catapults, and other war machines; and that he could execute sculpture in marble, bronze, and clay. He served as principal engineer in the duke's numerous military enterprises and was active also as an architect. In addition, he assisted the Italian mathematician Luca Pacioli in the celebrated work Divina Proportione (1509).

    Leonardo da Vinci's Polyhedra
    Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was the quintessential renaissance man : artist, mathematician, scientist, and engineer. He was a great lover of geometry, and devoted much time to it starting in his early forties. His most outstanding polyhedral accomplishment is the illustrations for Luca Pacioli 's 1509 book The Divine Proportion . At right is one of the illustrations from that book. The term Ycocedron Abscisus in the title plaque means truncated icosahedron , and the term Vacuus refers to the fact that the faces are hollow. (The drawings are beautifully hand colored like this in the Ambrosiana manuscript, reprinted by Officina Bodoni, 1956, and also by Silvana Editoriale, 1982.) These are the first illustrations of polyhedra ever in the form of "solid edges." The solidity of the edges lets one easily see which edges belong to the front and which to the back, unlike simple line drawings where the front and back surfaces may be visually confused. Yet the hollow faces allow one to see through to the structure of the rear surface. This is a brilliant new form of geometric illustration, one worthy of Leonardo's genius for insightful graphic display of information. However, it is not clear whether Leonardo invented this new form or whether he was simply drawing from "life" a series of wooden models with solid edges which Pacioli designed. If Pacioli designed these models, then he deserves the credit for this new "solid edge" idea, but it is likely that Leonardo designed them.

    Membership Committee Art and Science ... Recent Books THE SOCIETY The Society was founded by the late Kenneth Keele, who combined a distinguished career in medicine with important research into the work of Leonardo. Officers have included Sir Ernst Gombrich and Martin Kemp. It is notable that, while all three scholars could correctly be described as experts on the work of Leonardo, none of them was or is a specialist on Leonardo in the sense of carrying out research only into the work of Leonardo. That, of course, also tells one something about Leonardo. The Leonardo da Vinci Society is well established as providing a forum for those interested in Leonardo or more generally in the aspects of the culture of his time to which he contributed. The Society's interests also extend to the Art/Science overlap in other periods (due account being taken of the historical evolution of both the terms concerned).

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. His notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of his time.

... Bacchus LEONARDO DA VINCI Leonardo da Vinci (April 15, 1452 to May 2, 1519) was an immensely multi-talented Italian Renaissance polymath: architect, anatomist, sculptor, engineer, inventor, geometer, musician and painter. He has been described as the archetype of the "Renaissance man" and as a universal genius, a man infinitely curious and infinitely inventive. Leonardo da Vinci is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time. In his lifetime, Leonardo da Vinci was an engineer, artist, anatomist, physiologist and much more. His full birth name was "Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci", meaning "Leonardo, son of (Mes)ser Piero from Vinci". Leonardo da Vinci is famous for his realistic paintings, such as Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and Da Vinci's The Last Supper, as well as for influential drawings such as Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. Leonardo da Vinci conceived of ideas vastly ahead of his own time, notably conceptually inventing the helicopter, a tank, the use of concentrated solar power, the calculator, a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics, the double hull, and others too numerous to mention. Relatively few of da Vinci's designs were constructed or were feasible during his lifetime; modern scientific approaches to metallurgy and engineering were only in their infancy during the Renaissance. In addition, Leonardo da Vinci greatly advanced the state of knowledge in the fields of anatomy, astronomy, civil engineering, optics, and the study of water (hydrodynamics). Of Leonardo da Vinci's works, only a few paintings survive, together with his notebooks (scattered among various collections) containing drawings, scientific diagrams and notes.

Leonardo da Vinci: Experience, Experiment, Design
Leonardo da Vinci, Forster Codex, Volume I, 16v, 1505. Museum no. F.141 Volume I V16 (Forster) (click image for larger version) This collection of works reveals how Leonardo da Vinci thought on paper. It contains some of his most complex and challenging designs. Although many other artists, inventors and scientists have brainstormed on paper, none of Leonardo’s predecessors, contemporaries or successors used paper quite like he did. The intensity, variety and unpredictability of what happens on a single sheet are unparalleled. Behind the diversity are a series of unifying themes in Leonardo’s vision of how the world works. The dominant theme is the mathematical operation of all the powers of nature. Every small part of nature mirrors the action of the whole, and the human body is specifically a “lesser world” – lesser in scale but not in wonder and complexity. Everything is related to everything else. Leonardo saw connections where we see only differences. Drawing serves as the primary tool of analysis and the most potent way to show the essential unity of all things designed by nature. The human designer acts as a “second nature” in the world, inventing images and machines in harmony with natural laws.

For many readers the book has gone beyond the boundaries of fiction. It is often discussed not as a novel but as history.
