He was an architect, a musician, inventor, sculptor, scientist, and mathematician. His artistic talent revealed its self early in his life.

This statue now sits in the Bargello Museum in Florence, for all to come by and see the excellent work of this great artist By evaluating all my research I have come to the conclusion that Donatello is a true renaissance artist because he lived at the time of the renaissance and created a work of art that changed the way everyone of that time looked at art, and challenged them to accept something different and new.

The great Renaissance poet Ludovico Ariosto wrote succinctly of this famous artist: “Michael more than mortal, divine angel.” Indeed, Michelangelo was widely awarded the epithet “divine” because of his extraordinary accomplishments. Two generations of Italian painters and sculptures were impressed by his treatment of the human figure: Raphael, Annibale Carracci, Jacopo da pontormo, Rosso Fiorentino, Sebastiano del Piombo, and Titan. His dome for Saint Peter’s became the symbol of authority, as well as the model, for domes all over the Western world; the majorityof state capitol buildingsin the united states, as well as the Capitol building in Washington D.C., are dirived from it. Michelangelo died in 1564 and his body was placed in a fine monument in the church of Santa Croce.
Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo was born on April 15, 1452, near the town of Vinci. His artistic talent revealed itself early, for he was apprenticed in 1469 to a leading Renaissance master. In the Florence workshop, where he remained until 1476, Leonardo acquired a variety of skills. He entered the painters guild in 1472, and his earliest works date from this time. Works such as the Madonna with the carnation which although are traditional, include detail such as curling hair which only Leonardo could have done.
Eventually, between his mother and father da Vinci had a total of 17 half brothers and sisters (“Renaissance Man,” n.d.). Recognizing his artistic potential, in 1466 da Vinci’s father sent him to begin his apprenticeship under Andrea di Cione known as Verrocchio. Verrocchio was one of the most successful artist of his time, and Verrocchio’s workshop was at the heart of the intellectual streams in Florence.

His patron Lorenzo died in 1492, two years later Michelangelo fled Florence, when the Medici family was temporarily expelled. He settled for a time in Bologna where he sculpted several marble statuettes. Michelangelo then went to Rome, where he was able to look at many newly discovered classical statues and ruins.

Leonardo was a universal genius, (as said in "What Makes a Leonardo a Leonardo?"

1452-1519, Italian painter, sculptor, architect, musician, engineer, and scientist, probably the supreme example of Renaissance genius. Born in Vinci, Tuscany, he was the illegitimate son of a Florentine notary and a peasant girl. His precocious artistic talent brought him to Verrocchio's workshop in 1466, where he met Botticelli and Ghirlandaio. The cul mination of his art in this first period in Florence is seen in the magnificent, unfinished Adoration of the Magi (Uffizi), with its characteristic dramatic movement and chiaroscuro. In c.1482 Leonardo went to the court of Ludovico Sforza in Milan and there composed most of his Trattato della pittura and the notebooks that demonstrate his versa tile genius.
