Leonardo da Vinci was an artist in the Italian Renaissance who's known for his popular works "The Last Supper" and "Mona Lisa". Leonardo Da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in a small farmhouse in the village of Anchiano.
At age 14, Leonardo had an apprenticeship with an artist named Andrea del Verrocchio. During this time he had learned many skills such as metal works, leather arts, carpentry, drawing etc. His earliest dated work was a pen and ink drawing of the Arno Valley landscape.
The reason Leonardo da Vinci was a Renaissance man was because he was a painter, architect, inventor, and student of all things scientific. His natural genius crossed so many disciplines that he epitomized the term “Renaissance man.”
