Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo DA VINCI (b. 1452, Vinci, Republic of Florence [now in Italy]d. May 2, 1519, Cloux, Fr.), Italian painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect, and engineer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. His Last Supper (1495-97) and Mona Lisa (1503-06) are among the most widely popular and influential paintings of the Renaissance. His notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of his time. The Adoration of the Magi

"There has never been an artist who was more fittingly, and without qualification, described as a genius. Like Shakespeare, Leonardo came from an insignificant background and rose to universal acclaim. Leonardo was the illegitimate son of a local lawyer in the small town of Vinci in the Tuscan region. His father acknowledged him and paid for his training, but we may wonder whether the strangely self-sufficient tone of Leonardo's mind was not perhaps affected by his early ambiguity of status. The definitive polymath, he had almost too many gifts, including superlative male beauty, a splendid singing voice, magnificent physique, mathematical excellence, scientific daring ... the list is endless. This overabundance of talents caused him to treat his artistry lightly, seldom finishing a picture, and sometimes making rash technical experiments. The Last Supper , in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, for example, has almost vanished, so inadequate were his innovations in fresco preparation.

Leonardo daVinci (14521519) It may seem unusual to include Leonardo da Vinci in a list of paleontologists and evolutionary biologists.
L eonardo da V inci (1452-1519) It may seem unusual to include Leonardo da Vinci in a list of paleontologists and evolutionary biologists. Leonardo was and is best known as an artist, the creator of such masterpieces as the Mona Lisa Madonna of the Rocks , and The Last Supper . Yet Leonardo was far more than a great artist: he had one of the best scientific minds of his time. He made painstaking observations and carried out research in fields ranging from architecture and civil engineering to astronomy to anatomy and zoology to geography, geology and paleontology. In the words of his biographer Giorgio Vasari: The most heavenly gifts seem to be showered on certain human beings. Sometimes supernaturally, marvelously, they all congregate in one individual. . . . This was seen and acknowledged by all men in the case of Leonardo da Vinci, who had. . . an indescribable grace in every effortless act and deed. His talent was so rare that he mastered any subject to which he turned his attention. . . . He might have been a scientist if he had not been so versatile. Leonardo's scientific and technical observations are found in his handwritten manuscripts, of which over 4000 pages survive, including the one pictured on the right, showing some rock formations (click on it to view an enlargement). It seems that Leonardo planned to publish them as a great encyclopedia of knowledge, but like many of his projects, this one was never finished. The manuscripts are difficult to read: not only did Leonardo write in mirror-image script from right to left, but he used peculiar spellings and abbreviations, and his notes are not arranged in any logical order. After his death his notes were scattered to libraries and collections all over Europe. While portions of Leonardo's technical treatises on painting were published as early as 1651, the scope and caliber of much of his scientific work remained unknown until the 19th century. Yet his geological and paleontological observations and theories foreshadow many later breakthroughs.

Vinci - Leonardo's Home Town

The life and work of the great Italian Renaissance artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci have proved endlessly fascinating for later generations. What most impresses people today, perhaps, is the immense scope of his achievement. In the past, however, he was admired chiefly for his art and art theory. Leonardo's equally impressive contribution to science is a modern rediscovery, having been preserved in a vast quantity of notes that became widely known only in the 20th century.
Leonardo was born on Apr. 15, 1452, near the town of Vinci, not far from Florence. He was the illegitimate son of a Florentine notary, Piero da Vinci, and a young woman named Caterina. His artistic talent must have revealed itself early, for he was soon apprenticed (c. 1469) to Andrea Verrocchio, a leading Renaissance master. In this versatile Florentine workshop, where he remained until at least 1476, Leonardo acquired a variety of skills. He entered the painters' guild in 1472, and his earliest extant works date from this time. In 1478 he was commissioned to paint an altarpiece for the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. Three years later he undertook to paint the Adoration of the Magi for the monastery of San Donato a Scopeto. This project was interrupted when Leonardo left Florence for Milan about 1482. Leonardo worked for Duke Lodovico Sforza in Milan for nearly 18 years. Although active as court artist, painting portraits, designing festivals, and projecting a colossal equestrian monument in sculpture to the duke's father, Leonardo also became deeply interested in nonartistic matters during this period. He applied his growing knowledge of mechanics to his duties as a civil and military engineer; in addition, he took up scientific fields as diverse as anatomy, biology, mathematics, and physics. These activities, however, did not prevent him from completing his single most important painting

His life was described in Giorgio Vasari 's biography Vite. Leonardo was born in Vinci, Italy . His father Ser Piero da Vinci was a well-off landowner or craftsman and his mother a peasant girl called Caterina. It has been suggested that Caterina was a slave of middle eastern origin owned by Piero, but the evidence is scant. This was before modern naming conventions developed in Europe . Therefore, his full name was "Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci", which means "Leonardo, son of Piero, from Vinci". Leonardo himself simply signed his works "Leonardo" or "Io, Leonardo" ("I, Leonardo"). Most authorities therefore refer to his works as "Leonardos," not "da Vincis." Presumably he did not use his father's name because he was an illegitimate child Leonardo grew up with his father in Florence . He was a vegetarian throughout his life. He became a painter's apprentice and later an independent painter in Florence.

Leonardo Da Vinci: A Man of Both Worlds
Pretty impressive! In his 67 years of life, Leonardo Da Vinci was a painter, sculptor, architect, musician, engineer, inventor, and scientist. This genius of the fifteenth century revolutionized the art world with his paintings. His sketches covered a spectrum of topics including life studies, science, and architecture. In fact, Da Vinci's models of weapons and his strategic layouts and battle plans were marveled at by military leaders for many years after his death. Languages: English.

13. Leonardo Da Vinci: The Painter
Excerpt from Reading About the World, Volume 1.
Leonardo da Vinci: The Painter (15th Century CE)
What qualities does Leonardo claim for his own art in contrast to that of others? Why does he feel that perspective is important?
Because I can find no useful or pleasant subject to discourse on, since the men who came before me have taken all the useful and pleasant subjects and discoursed on them at length, I find I must behave like a pauper who comes to the fair last, and can provide for himself in no other way than to take those things of trivial value that have been rejected by other buyers. I, then, will fill my shopping bag with all these despised and rejected wares, trash passed over by previous buyers, and take them and distribute them, not in the great cities, but in the poorest villages, taking whatever money might be offered. I realize many will call my little work useless; these people, as far as I'm concerned, are like those whom Demetrius was talking about when he said that he cared no more for the wind that issued from their mouths than the wind that issued from their lower extremities. These men desire only material wealth and are utterly lacking in wisdom, which is the only true food and wealth for the mind. The soul is so much greater than the body, its possessions so much nobler than those of the body. So, whenever a person of this sort picks up any of my works to read, I half expect him to put it to his nose the way a monkey does, or ask me if it's good to eat. I also realize that I am not a literary man, and that certain people who know too much that is good for them will blame me, saying that I'm not a man of letters. Fools! Dolts! I may refute them the way Marius did to the Roman patricians when he said that some who adorn themselves with other people's labor won't allow me to do my own labor. These folks will say that since I have no skill at literature, I will not be able to decorously express what I'm talking about. What they don't know is that the subjects I am dealing with are to be dealt with

Leonardo da Vinci war nicht nur ein herausragender Künstler, sondern verband als Universalgenie das Wissen der Renaissance über Wissenschaft und Technik in seiner Person, wobei er oft weit über seine Zeit hinauswies, so etwa mit der Idee zu einem Panzer, einem Auto, einem Helikopter oder einem Fallschirm. 1999 wurde der Fallschirm von Engländern nach den Angaben Leonardos nachgebaut und ausprobiert: er funktionierte. Leonardo entwarf auch ideale Garten- und Schlossanlagen, Kirchen, Festungen, Kanäle und mehrgeschossige Strassen.
Leonardo beschäftige sich auch mit der Zeitmessung, entwarf Sand- und Wasseruhren, kümmerte sich um praktische Probleme der Gewichtsuhr, entwickelte Federtypen, konstruierte spezielle Schneckenschrauben mit unendlichen Gewinden und verfeinerte die Mechanik von Schwungrädern und -kränzen. Bereits ein Jahrhundert vor Galileo und rund zwei vor Huygens entwickelte Leonardo grundlegende Erkenntnisse zur Zeitmessung, bei denen er immer wieder den Zusammenhang mit anderen Maschinen herstellte.
Seine Kunstwerke zeichnen sich durch Beobachtungsschärfe, ein Gefühl für die Natur und psychologische Einfühlung aus. Kompositorisch streben sie nach klassischer, formaler Ausgewogenheit. Sie erscheinen in ein weiches Halblicht (
