Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was born on April 15th 1452 in Vinci, Republic of Florence at three in the morning, Leonardo was born out of wedlock his parents were Piero da Vinci, and a peasant woman named Caterina. He was/is known for being a polymath: architect, sculptor, painter, botanist, engineer, mathematician, inventor, anatomist, cartographer, geologist, writer and a musician. He was a true genius and master of diverse fields, an inspiration. A man with unquenchable curiosity and an extremely inventive imagination who is vastly believed to be the most diversely talented person to have ever lived.
However such knowledge is not something you are born with. He was educated in the studio of the notorious Florentine painter Verrocchio, Leonardo then worked under the facility of Ludovico il Moro which is in Milan; he then later worked in Rome, Bologna and Venice. Leonardo worked with Verrocchio on the piece of his “The Baptism of Christ” painting the young angel holding Jesus’s robe in such a way that was so much greater to his master's that Verrocchio put down his paint brush and never again painted. Leonardo Da Vinci is renowned for his technological cunning as he conceptualised things that we use today such as the Tank. He made important discoveries in civil engineering, anatomy and optics and even hydrodynamics he did not publish all of his findings and works so they didn’t take much influence on more modern sciences however Leonardo Da Vinci had been a sufferer of chronic procrastination, which lead him to leaving only a few pieces of finalised work; he ruined quite a lot of his work with his frequent disastrous experimentation with new techniques. But only through failure can success be achieved. Leonardo created “The Last Supper” is the most reproduced religious painting of all time and history, with his fame confronted by only Michelangelo's “The Creation of Adam” so through repetition and experimentation he mastered art and produced a piece of art that can be seen nearly everywhere or anywhere in the world.
However no one is entirely perfect. There is Florentine court records in 1476 show that Leonardo and three more young men were charged with sodomy, however they were acquitted. From that date on there is no record of his works or even of his presence for quite a while. There is one writer who claims that in 1480 Leonardo was living with the Medici organisation and was working in the Gardens of Piazza San Marco in Florence, an academy of artists, philosophers and poets which the Medici had created. Leonardo da Vinci a man talented in what seems to be everything.
In older age from September 1513 to the year 1516, under the Pope Leo X, Leonardo spent much of his time time in Belvedere, the Vatican in Rome, where both Raphael and Michelangelo were present at the same time. Spending the last years of his life in France at the home awarded to him by Francis the first. He died May 2nd 1519 at 67 years old in Amboise, Kingdom of France....
