Sunday Evening Art Gallery Blog — Leonardo Da Vinci

We all have heard of Leonard Da Vinci‘s paintings Mona Lisa and The Last Supper.


But Da Vinci was so much more than a painter.


Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) was an Italian polymath, having been a scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer.


He spent a great deal of time immersing himself in nature, testing scientific laws, dissecting bodies (human and animal) and thinking and writing about his observations.


 This was at the same time as King Henry VII — swords and maces, leeching, pestilence, and non-existent technology.


That is why, when you are an artist, your mantle is wide and long and                   all-encompassing.


You are a multi-colored rainbow of curiosity and creativity.


Just like Leonardo.

  1. An amazing person of great skill and intellect, a man way ahead of his time. We visited Vinci many years ago. The town honours their most famous son with a museum with models of many of Leonardo’s inventions. Absolutely fascinating
