Leonardo da Vinci
Transcript of Leonardo da Vinci
By: Amelie Teltscher
The Life of
Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in Vinci, Italy.
He is most commonly known for being a painter. However, in his lifetime, he was considered to be the "Jack of all trades."
He was a sculptor, engineer, mathematician, inventor and writer.
This made him the ideal Renaissance man.
The "Ideal Renaissance Man"
Many artists of the Renaissance were caught up with establishing the definition of an "ideal Renaissance man." This was a well-rounded man who was a master at many different branches of art and study. Because of da Vinci's vast knowledge in the arts and sciences, he was known to be the "ideal Renaissance man."
Influences on his Paintings
His Studies in the
Math and Sciences
Da Vinci was known to be one of the
many geniuses of the Renaissance. His contributions to the fields of study such as math and science influenced many other artists of the Renaissance to become an example of a well-rounded individual. Da Vinci drew sketches of many intricate and complicated inventions, however, never invented them. These sketches were found long after his death but show that they were extremely advanced for his day.
Da Vinci's Link to the Renaissance
The Renaissance was a "rebirth" in the arts and learning, as well as, math and sciences. It brought about curiosity in the people of the Renaissance about the unknown world and what it has to offer. This curiosity was the reason why da Vinci was such a master at many different studies.

Influences on his Works
Da Vinci's paintings were greatly influenced by humanism during the Renaissance and by the humanistic beliefs of not only individualism but also of Christianity. His painting the "Last Supper" portrays his strong Christian faith and values which were influenced by the teachings of humanism.
Da Vinci is most famously known for his half-length portrait of a woman known as the Mona Lisa. He is also commonly known as the painter of "The Last Supper", a painting of Jesus Christ surrounded by his twelve disciples during the last supper before Christ was arrested.
