Michelangelo was one of the advocates of this new philosophy, while creating some of the most beautiful and very famous artwork pieces ever created. He was born at Caprese, in Tuscany, "he was the second of five sons of Lodovico di Leonardo (a civil servant) and Francesca Buonarroti." (Bradbury page 6). The family had two homes: one in the Tuscan countryside, and a much smaller one in the city of Florence. In 1481, when Michelangelo was six years old, his mother died.
Leonardo Da Vinci Most people probably think of Leonardo Da Vinci as just a painter but in reality he was actually also a expert drawer, an ingenious inventor, and a marvelous scientist. Over a period of twenty-five years Leonard dissected around thirty human bodies as well as cows, birds, frogs, bears, and monkeys. Of these bodies he made over two hundred tedious drawings. Another thing to remember is beings the process of drawing took so long the bodies would start decomposing before he was finished with all of the drawings in which he intended to make. Leonardo Da Vinci was born on Saturday April 15, 1452.
He was the son of Messer Piero Frusino di Antonio da Vinci and Catarina. The event that started his career was probably his first painting. When he was young, he was asked to paint a painting onto a disc. He painted a picture of a medusa head breathing balls of fire. His father thought it was so terrifying that he sold it, bought a disc with a painting already on it with the money from the sold one, and gave it to the man.
It took him a lot of time to paint the entire building. I feel this was his best piece of art ever. He had many accomplishments that were outstanding. The second of five brothers, Michelangelo was born on March 6, 1475, at Caprese, in Tuscany, to Ludovico di Leonardo di Buonarotto Simoni and Francesca Neri. The same day, his father noted down: "Today March 6, 1475, a child of the male sex has been born to me and I have named him Michelangelo.
Once Leonardo reached the age of five, he decided to live with his grandfather (Leonardo artist page 18). At the age of ten, his father arranged for Leonardo to move to Florence (page 18). There, he would become an apprentice of a well-known artist, Andrea Del Verrocchio (page 18). After completing his apprenticeship, Leonardo stayed with Verrocchio (Leonardo world ¶ 2). Often Leonardo would assist in Verrocchio’s paintings, drawing one of the inc... ... middle of paper ... ... new ¶ 7).
Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo Da Vinci was a man of many worlds. He was a great influence inhis time. Leonardo was known as many things. He was known as a sculptor, architect, writer, musician,philosopher, engineer, and scientist. But most of all he was known for his impressive paintings that influenced the world.
He was born of Caterina Lippi and Piero Da Vinci. Until Leonardo was twelve, his life was quite normal due to the fact that he lived with his grandparents and uncle in Vinci. Because his stepmother (Alberia) died in childbirth, his father brought him to Florence. Even though he had no formal education he exceled in math and science. By the time Leonardo was fourteen, his father had landed him an apprenticeship with Andrea Del Verrocchio, an artist who ran
They kept having children, but not with each other. Sooner or later, Leonardo da Vinci had seventeen half brothers and sisters. While Leonardo was growing up in his father’s home in Italy, he had access to knowledge databases such as books and scripture. Also, Leonardo was exposed to Italy’s rich, vibrant painting community. At the age of fifteen, Leonardo’s father apprenticed him to the workshop of Andrea Del Verrochio in Florence.
Leonardo da Vinci was born in Vinci, Italy on April 15, 1452. His father, Ser Piero di Antonio da Vinci, was not married to Leonardo’s mother, a poor girl named Caterina. Leonardo’s parents went their separate ways and married other people. Leonardo lived with his mother, grandmother, and his mother’s future husband for five years of his life, but Leonardo’s father claimed custody of Leonardo when he discovered that his current wife was unable to have children. Leonardo da Vinci’s father fathered 12 other children with several wives.
He did some of the best research that contributed to the inventions that we enjoy now. During his life he painted two of the most famous realistic paintings ever, Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. Leonardo DaVinci is one of the greatest people to walk this earth. Growing up it was unsure how little Leo would turn out. Leonardo was born on Saturday April 15, 1452 at 3 a.m. (Frere 29) and died May 2, 1519 at age 67(mos 2).
