Leonardo Da Vinci Birthday
He was born on April 15, 1452.
- He was an Italian Renaissance polymath whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, Engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, and cartography.
- He has been variously called the father of palaeontology, ichnology, and architecture, and is widely considered one of the greatest painters of all time.
- Among the works created by Leonardo in the 16th century is the small portrait known as the Mona Lisa or “la Gioconda”, the laughing one. In the present era it is arguably the most famous painting in the world. Its fame rests, in particular, on the elusive smile on the woman’s face, its mysterious quality perhaps due to the subtly shadowed corners of the mouth and eyes such that the exact nature of the smile cannot be determined.
He was died on May 2, 1519
