Leonardo Da Vinci the painter, architect, and inventor.
Leonardo Di Ser Piero Da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in Vinci,Italy. When he was 5, he lived on the estate in Vinci that belonged to his father, Ser Piero. Leonardo was a very wise man. He was a painter, sculptor, inventor, mathematician, and student of all things scientific. He was very concerned with the laws of science and nature. This influenced his work as a painter, inventor, and sculptor. Leonardo created some of the most amazing pieces in Art History, such as " The Mona Lisa," "The Last Supper," and "Leda and the Swan". In 1516 when French ruler Francis 1, offered him the title of "Premier Painter and Engineer and Architect to the King", Da Vinci left Italy for good. He got the opportunity to paint and draw at his leisure. Da Vinci died in Clos-Luce on May 2, 1519, and was buried near the Palace Church of Saint-Florentin. Because the Frech Revolution nearly ruined the church, and its remains were destroyed, it made it impossible to identify exactly Da Vini's gravesite.
The well-known Leonardo Da Vinci,
famous for his expressive art and his extremely famous "Mona Lisa", has met his end as of May 2, 1519 he has passed on to a better life.Born in Vinci,Italy in 1452,Da Vinci began his art lifestyle in 1469. France was the last to see him.His art will be his legend as well as his help to improve painting, sculpting, engineering and biology.Da Vinci's art involve his thoughts on humanism and how he expressed freedom.His art did not have much of an economic impact in his lifestyle, He did move to Milan in order to accomplish a wanted art piece, but didn't do it for the money he did it more for the love he had for art.

Johannes Gutenberg designed this fabulous machine that is based on screw presses, that when partnered with inked movable type heads, allows paper to be quickly and efficiently pressed with letters!
How the printing press works:

1. The
type heads
are made by pouring a lead-tin alloy into a hand mold, and are then installed to the top of movable, rectangular stalks.

2. The stalks then can be arranged in order to create words and sentences within a rectangular container, before being fed under a screw press.

3.The screw press then is clamped to a paper sheet on top of the type heads, pressing their ink onto the sheet.

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare is believed to be born near April 23, 1564 since he was baptized on April 26, 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. From 1594 onward he was an important member of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men company. Over the course of 20 years, Shakespeare wrote plays that express deeply human emotion and conflict. William is the third child of John Shakespeare, a leather merchant, and Mary Arden, a local landed heiress. William is the middle child, having 2 older sisters (Joan and Judith) and 3 younger brothers (Gilbert, Richard and Edmund). Although he writes extraordinary pieces of art, no school records exist. William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway on November 28, 1582, in Worcester, in Canterbury Province. William was 18 and Anne was 26. Their first child was born on May 26, 1583; she is a lovely girl named Susanna. Twins Hamnet and Judith were born two years later, on February 2, 1585. Hamnet later died of unknown causes at age 11. By 1592, William Shakespeare earned a living as an actor and a playwright in London and possibly had several plays produced. Early in his career, Shakespeare was able to attract the attention of Henry Wriothesley and the Earl of Southampton to whom he dedicated his first- and second-published poems: "Venus and Adonis" (1593) and "The Rape of Lucrece" (1594). By 1597, 15 of the 37 plays written by William Shakespeare were published. Shakespeare still continues to write outstanding theatrical work.

"Mona Lisa"(F)
Madonna del Prato (also known as Madonna of the Meadow) is a painting by Raphael in 1505 painted in Florence. It was painted with oil as the medium on a wooden board. This painting is depicting Virgin Mary looking down to baby Jesus and his cousin, John the Baptist, who is kneeling and offering a cross to Jesus. When looking at a piece of art, things to look for are; fulfilled intent, skill and technique, and beauty in the art. Overall, both the physical setting and the subject matter are pleasant to look at, there is no pain and no struggle.
To begin, it is important to understand what the artist is trying to portray; fulfilled intent. The boy Baptist is supposed to have recognized and worshipped Christ as the redeemer even in their childhoood. Raphael makes this clear by letting Christ take the cross from John. The cross that baby Jesus is holding symbolizes the begining of Christianity. A technique used in this painting is shadowing. This helps makes the characters faces in the picture look more realistic. It shows the love that Mary had for Jesus. The painting also shows the love a mother has for her child.
Next, an intriguing piece uses technique and skill. Compared to other pieces by Raphael, this particular one does seem a lot more subbtle then lets say the Deposition showing a war. But that being said, the subtleness brings a more gentle type tone. Putting Virgin Mary in the center with lighter skin tones towards the bottom, leading to deeper tones of Mary,s dress, and back to lighter tones of the sky, gives it an equally ballance, adding to the skillset of the artist.
Last, beauty is something every piece of art has, and in every piece its different.The work as a whole is structuarlly harmonic, from the figure group to the sweeping landscape. Making the Virgin Mary, Jesus and john a focus point of the painting lets us know that he wanted them to have the most attention when looked at. This is an appealing piece because it shows Mary's love for Jesus and shows Johns interest in Christ.
In conclsion, this is a very pleasant piece and reasuring because Mary and John trust and beieve in Christ even as a child. Raphael used great technique, beauty, and fullfilled his intent very well. This is a wonderful way to view the scene.

The poem Beauty, Time, and Love was written by Samuel Daniels. It has seven stanzas, each with around seven-teen lines. This poem is about his love who may or may not exist.
In the begining of the poem he talks about how perfect she is "Her brow-shades frown, although her eyes are sunny. Her smiles are lightning, though her pride despair".
Then, he goes on about if she is real or not. Towards the end he discusses how even if shes not real shes still perfect and he will always remember her. This poem speaks of how imagination can conjur up things so close to reality. overall, this is a s
