Leonardo da Vinci
[1452-1519] born on Apr 15
Artist & Inventer
Leonardo's mastery in art, science and engineering have earned him a place among the most prolific geniuses of history. Few artists owed so little to circumstances and teachers. He was quite self-made. Few men had such varied talent and amassed such encyclopedic knowledge; his method as an artist was original with him, science was the measure of beauty, he combined fact with poetry and made use of both to carry on wide investigations in nature and to reproduce life according to the very laws of life.
