Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519): Italian polymath of the Renaissance

Who was Leonardo da Vinci?

Leonardo da Vinci, born in 1452 in Vinci, Italy, was a true Renaissance polymath, renowned for his contributions to art, science, and innovation. His artistic mastery is evident in iconic paintings such as the "Mona Lisa" and "The Last Supper." Leonardo's innovative techniques, including sfumato (subtle transitions between colors and tones), redefined the art of painting and continue to influence artists to this day.

Beyond his artistic achievements, Leonardo was a visionary inventor and engineer. His notebooks are filled with sketches and concepts for numerous groundbreaking inventions, ranging from flying machines and parachutes to armored vehicles and diving equipment. Many of his ideas were not realized in his time but laid the foundation for future technological advancements.
