Leonardo Da Vinci
Transcript of Leonardo Da Vinci
-> The illegitimate son of a notary and a peasant girl. He did not received any education besides Latin and basic mathematics.
-> Leonardo spent most of his childhood on his father’s estate, where early on he was shown to have a passion for invention an innovation alongside the arts. -> At 15 Leonardo was sent to Florence to work as apprentice to Andrea De Verrocchio. -> The Baptism of Christ, now in the Uffizi at Florence, was painted in 1474-75. In this work Verrocchio was assisted by Leonardo da Vinci, then a youth and a member of his workshop, who painted the angel on the left and the part of the background above. -> Leonardo Da Vinci was a Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer.
-> His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". (Gardner, 1970) Leonardo's self-portrait. 1481 -> Leonardo begins work on The Adoration of the Magi, an altarpiece for the Monastery of San Donato at Scopeto.
-> Leonardo moves to Milan to work in the service of the city's duke, Ludovico Sforza. He gains the title of "painter and engineer of the duke".
-> During this time he complies many of his most famous studies and sketches within his famous journals. 1502 1516 -> Leonardo begins work as senior military architect and general engineer for Cesare Borgia, son of Pope Alexander VI.
-> Later next year Da Vinci is commissioned to paint the Mona Lisa.
-> And later still Leonardo is commission to paint a mural for the council hall in Florence's Palazzo Vecchio, which is to be the Battle of Anghiari, a work that would remain unfinished even after 12 years of work. -> The king of France invites Leonardo to come work for him.
-> On May the second of 1519, Leonardo at sixty-seven years of age, dies in France of natural causes. Legend has it that King Francis was at his side when he died, cradling Leonardo's head in his arms. (Another of) "To be the ultimate Renaisssance man, one had to master every discipline, from the natural sciences, engineering and architecture through to philosophy and the arts. Leonardo wrote detailed notes on all of these subjects, and in the margins he often left tantalizing doodles of astonishing machines, tanks, parachutes, helicopters, many of which might actually have worked."

“Nature is the source of all true knowledge. She has her own logic, her own laws, she has no effect without cause nor invention without necessity,” he said. (MediciL Godfathers of the Renaissance, Leonardo) An anatomically accurate
