Claude Oscar Monet - The complete works Leonardo da Vinci Biography Leonardo da Vinci was a leading artist and intellectual of the Italian Renaissance who's known for his enduring works "The Last Supper" and "Mona Lisa." Synopsis Born on April 15, 1452, in Vinci, Italy, Leonardo da Vinci was the epitome of a “Renaissance man.” Possessor of a curious mind and keen intellect, da Vinci studied the laws of science and nature, which greatly informed his work as a painter, sculptor, architect, inventor, military engineer and draftsman. Humble Beginnings Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452, in a farmhouse nestled amid the undulating hills of Tuscany outside the village of Anchiano in present-day Italy. Young Leonardo received little formal education beyond basic reading, writing and mathematics instruction, but his artistic talents were evident from an early age. At the age of 20, da Vinci qualified for membership as a master artist in Florence’s Guild of Saint Luke and established his own workshop. “Renaissance Man” Emerges in Milan Final Years Videos

Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo is revered for his technological ingenuity. He conceptualised flying machines, an armoured vehicle, concentrated solar power, an adding machine,[7] and the double hull, also outlining a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics. Relatively few of his designs were constructed or were even feasible during his lifetime,[nb 2] but some of his smaller inventions, such as an automated bobbin winder and a machine for testing the tensile strength of wire, entered the world of manufacturing unheralded.[nb 3] He made substantial discoveries in anatomy, civil engineering, optics, and hydrodynamics, but he did not publish his findings and they had no direct influence on later science.[8] Life Childhood, 1452–1466 Leonardo's earliest known drawing, the Arno Valley (1473), Uffizi Verrocchio's workshop, 1466–1476 Professional life, 1476–1513 In 1482 Leonardo, who according to Vasari was a most talented musician,[25] created a silver lyre in the shape of a horse's head.

Horrible Histories Leonardo Da Vinci Gil Elvgren’s Pin-Up Girls And Their Photo Reference The Pin-up girl culture became very popular during the early 20th century and continued well into the 80s and even late 90s. Many pin-ups were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. Other pin-ups were artwork, often depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. Gil Elvgren was one of the most important pin-up and glamour artists of the twentieth century. Elvgren was a commercial success. This gallery shows some of his artwork of pin-up girls and the photos he used as reference. La Sainte Anne, De Vinci Remerciements : Cette exposition bénéficie du mécénat exclusif de Salvatore Ferragamo Chef-d’œuvre de Léonard de Vinci restauré avec le concours du Centre de recherche et de restauration des musées de France, la Vierge à l’Enfant avec sainte Anne est au cœur d’une exposition exceptionnelle rassemblant pour la première fois l’ensemble des documents liés à ce panneau. Le début de la lente et complexe genèse du tableau remonterait à 1501, date de sa première mention dans la correspondance d’Isabelle d’Este. Léonard de Vinci ne cessa ensuite de perfectionner cette composition ambitieuse, qu’il laissa inachevée à sa mort en 1519. Esquisses de composition, dessins préparatoires, études de paysage et le magnifique carton de la National Gallery de Londres – jamais présenté à côté du tableau depuis la mort de Léonard – illustrent, entre autres, cette longue méditation et rendent compte des différentes solutions successivement envisagées par le maître.
