Transcript of Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci Basic Stuff Early Life Little is known about his early life.He spent his first five years in the hamlet of Anchiano, then lived with his father, grandparents and uncle, Francesco, in the small town of Vinci. His father had married a sixteen-year-old girl named Albiera, who loved Leonardo but died young. In later life, Leonardo only recorded two childhood incidents. One is when a hawk flew over his cradle its tail feathers brushing his face.The second occurred while exploring in the mountains. He discovered a cave and was both terrified that some great monster might lurk there, and driven by curiosity to find out what was inside. When he was seventeen, he moved to Florence, where his talent for drawing impressed the great master Verrocchio who took him on as a pupil. Verrocchio's workshop, 1466–1476 In 1466, when he was fourteen years old, Leonardo was the apprentice one of the most successful artists of his day, Andrea di Cione, known as Verrocchio. His workshop was at the centre of the intellectual currents, assuring Leonardo of an education in the humanities. Other famous painters apprenticed with Verrocchio's workshop. Leonardo would have been exposed to a vast range of technical skills and had the opportunity to learn drafting, chemistry, metallurgy, metal working, plaster casting, leather working, mechanics and carpentry as well as the artistic skills of drawing, painting, sculpting and modelling. Professional Life From around 1482 to 1499 Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan , employed Leonardo and permitted him to operate his own workshop complete with apprentices. Around 1495, Leonardo began his painting The Last Supper, which achieved immense success but began to deteriorate physically almost immediately upon completion.In 1500, Leonardo arrived in Florence, where he painted the Virgin and Child with Saint Anne. He was very interested in mathematics at this time. In 1502, he went to work as chief military engineer to Cesare Borgia, and also became friends with Niccolo Machiavelli. In 1505 Leonardo probably made his first sketches for the Mona Lisa, but it is not known when he completed the painting. 10 Leonardo da Vinci
