About Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. 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”.  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.(excerpt from Wikipedia
