Happy Birthday Leonardo da Vinci!

Here’s to celebrating this legendary artist in honor of his birthday.

On this day in 1452, the genius Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was born.  Da Vinci was a man of many talents who was best known for his abilities as a painter, architect, inventor, and scientist.  His natural genius spread across so many different fields that his name is now synonymous with the term “Renaissance Man.”

In the world of art, da Vinci is best known for some of the most influential and famous paintings in the world, the “Mona Lisa” and “The Last Supper.”  However, his prowess did not end there.  Da Vinci also studied nature, mechanics, anatomy, physics, architecture, weaponry, and many other disciplines.  He also created workable designs for items as diverse as bicycles, helicopters, submarines, and military tanks—vehicles that would not be built for centuries.

Due to his diverse set of interests, da Vinci never made a significant number of paintings or completed the many projects he envisioned.  However, his legacy lives on in his manuscripts and “codices.”  Covering the broad themes of painting, architecture, mechanics, and human anatomy, da Vinci’s codices had little impact on the science of his time.  However, today, they are prized for their ingenuity and brilliance.
