Transcript of Renaissance Art Project

Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo was a painter, sculptor,
an engineer and an architect Da Vinci was born on
april 15, 1452 in Vinci, Italy (near Florence) Some famous artworks of Leonardo da Vinci The Vitruvian Man The Mona Lisa So why is the Mona Lisa is so famous? 1. The revolutionary three-quarter pose and the pyramid which helped focus the painting. 2. The background is blurred as it goes further back. 3. There are many different
interpretations about Mona Lisa's
mysterious smile. 4. The landscape is physcally impossible As an artist Leonardo da Vinci quickly became master of topographic anatomy, drawing mucles, temdons, and many other features. He made over 200 pages of drawings and many pages of notes about anatomy. The Last Supper During Leonardo's life time he was valued as an engineer, later on in his life he was claimed to be able to create all sorts of machines.
Leonardo's scientific and technical observations were written down and he planned to publish them, but like many other projects it was never finished. Leonardo's painting had incredible detail that almost made them seem real such as shadow affects and textures. Because of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings of the human body doctors can preform better during surgery. Leonardo is good at displaying perspective in his paintings. His paintings are soft and life-like. There is depth in da Vinci's paintings. Leonardo da Vinci was a bastard child (his dad had an afair with another woman)
and wasn't able to get an education or get paid the respect he deserved. Leonardo wanted to gain the
respect he deserved, even as a bastard
child. He knew that he had potential so he followed
through and continued with his studies in art and engineering. Da Vinci worked at Verrocchio's workshop to study art and many technical skills. Florence, at the time of Leonardo's youth, was the centre of Christian Humanist thought and culture. Da Vinci died on May 2, 1519 at the age of 67 inClos Lucé, France.. Leonardo da Vinci was truly a Renaissance Man. * Since da Vinci wasn't allowed to
take after his father's name, he was
known as da Vinci as in from Vinci. Da Vinci mixed his own oil paints and mediums. He usually painted in oils on canvas or board; or occasionally tempera on canvas. The Vitruvian Man was so remarkable because it effectively and beautifully connects the ideals of nature, man and geometry. Leonardo also worked for Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, for nearly eighteen years (1482-99) and was assigned to paint The Last Supper. The Last Supper was so significant because the disciples are all displaying very human, identifiable emotions and displayed perspective. By: Madison List and Sabrina Wu
