Leonardo da Vinci Early life, Education, Career, Awards, Achievements, Controversy, Unknown Facts

About (Profile/Biography):
Leonardo da Vinci was a famous artist, engineer, and inventor from Italy. He made a name for himself during the Italian Renaissance. Da Vinci worked both with the fine arts and in technical and scientific fields. His work was often commissioned by kings and nobles between the 1400s and 1500s. To get a better understanding of how things worked he would always draw schematics, sketches, and pictures of them. This helped him see the world from a technical point-of-view. As a result, the pieces he left behind were just as pleasant to look at as they were informative.

Career:

In the community of painters and physicians known as the "Guild of Saint Luke," Da Vinci had earned the title of master by 1472.

A sketch called "Arno Valley," made in 1473, with the aid of Verrocchio was one of his early sketches.

The Virgin of the Rocks was regarded as one of his greatest works because of its intricate manner and detailing.

The Duke of Milan, Ludovico Sforza, gave Leonardo the commission for one of his most famous works of art, "The Last Supper," on which he worked from 1495 to 1498.

Leonardo was chosen to serve as the military architect and engineer in 1499, and he was tasked with coming up with a strategy to protect the city of Venice from maritime invasion.

He drew a map of Cesare's city at a time when maps were not very widespread. 

He wrote numerous books over the years.

Achievements and Awards:

Duncan Dowson designated Leonardo as the first of 23 "Men of Tribology" for this work.

Charles II sent all of his drawings to England, where they were all stored in the "Royal Collection."

Unknown facts:

This artist spent ten years painting the lips of the Mona Lisa.

It is thought that Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a merchant, is shown in "The Mona Lisa."
