Da Vinci was the definition of a renaissance man with skills from art to science.
He lived in Italy and France and died at age 67, he grew up in Florence. He came from the working class.
His father and mother Piero and Catherina, and his instructor Verrocchio who was a painter were important in his life.
He had a long beard, a long nose, and a long face overall. His hair in the pictures is white and seems to like that kind of hat.
His personality was very curious and ingenious with many skills.
He is most famous for his paintings such as the Mona lisa above and the last supper.
"He conceptualised flying machines, a tank, concentrated solar power, an adding machine, and the double hull, also outlining a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics."
As you can see he was the archetype of a renaissance man and a genius to say the least.
