Leonardo da Vinci


Da Vinci was mostly self-educated.

He had dozens of secret notebooks filled with inventions, observations, and theories about everything he studied: from aeronautics to anatomy.

In his time, he was praised as a great artist, but not for the scientific genius that he was.

Because his notebooks were not published until the 1500;s, he had little impact on the scientific advancements of the Renaissance.


Lasting Impact

Di Vinci's accomplishments had lasting impacts on science, technology, and art.



Da Vinci was renamed "The Renaissance Man" because of his many abilities and skills in art and science.

He was a painter, a sculptor, an architect, and an engineer. He studied anatomy of plants and animals, invented weapons (flying machine predating modern helicopter), and historical paintings and drawings (Mona Lisa). In order to study human anatomy, he would break into morgues and dissect corpses.
