LEONARDO DA VINCI, THE ITALIAN POLYMATH

2015-31 Leonardo da Vinci, the Italian Polymath


Leonardo da Vinci [1452-1519]
Leonardo da Vinci, [1452–1519] was an Italian polymath. He was a painter, sculptor, architect, scientist, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, astronomer, cartographer, botanist, historian and writer.

He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived in the Western world. He is referred to as the Father of paleontology alongside Georges Cuvier

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". 

Leonardo da Vinci is most known for his enduring works "The Last Supper" and "Mona Lisa."
