How did Leonardo da Vinci influence people's lives during the Renaissance period and people today?
Leonardo da Vinci's studies and experiments have influenced and changed the world because of the importance of learning that he believed in, especially during the Renaissance period.
During the Renaissance back in the 1500's, there were many well-known artist, engineers, architects, and inventors. But, there was one that stood out from all the others. His name was Leonard da Vinci. Da Vinci excelled in everything he did, especially in his studies of the human body (anatomy). Even today, we still use his sketches/notes to see if a persons bones and organs are in the right place. "Art, da Vinci beived, was indisputably connected with science and nature" (History-Leonardo da Vinci). Some call him the true genius of the Renaissance, he actually really is. His studies, artwork, inventions, and engineering continues to have an impact on our world today. "To make his art more real, Leonardo studied anatomy, or the structure of human bodies" (Holt 309). His artwork became more realistic because of his studies and even artist today have taken that route to take a closer look at the human body to make their work look realistic as well. Even though we may not see it all the time, Leonardo da Vinci truly had a huge impact, not just in the Renaissance, but across the world.
