In the presentation, we were required to give a brief biography of the artist, and explain each of the major works you’ve chosen: when it was painted, who it was painted for, what the content of the painting is, what stylistic innovations were used, and where the piece
of art currently sits. by: Bibi Neves 7A Leonardo Da Vinci The Last Supper Virgin of the Rocks Mona Lisa More than an Artist When the name "Leonardo Da Vinci" appears,
people immediately think of the word "painter". But he was a lot more then that. Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) was an Italian painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, and a scientist. But most of all, he was an influence to the generations that followed. Raised by his father, he began apprenticing at the age of 15 under the artist Andrea del Verrocchio. After he completed his apprenticeship, he became Verrochio's assistant in his workshop. In about 1478, Da Vinci opened his own studio, where he began to produce his own works, by himself.
