The great Leonardo Da Vinci. There are many ways you can explain him. Leonardo was deservedly, one of the most famous painters to have ever lived. He was just such an impacting and dominant person in the Renaissance. He was involved, had his own ideas, was such a humanist, and is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person to have ever lived.
With all of these accomplishments made, Leonardo has definitely become a “renaissance man”. From his fabulous paintings, to his astonishing inventions, he was a brilliant man. To discover how birds fly or to learn the anatomy of a person, his mind was bounding with ideas. To do all of these things must’ve been amazing, but struggling. So, in conclusion, Leonardo’s inventions and art have made him one of the most acclaimed intellectuals of his time.

Recently, people from Madrid found another painting that an artist did of the Mona Lisa. They discovered that this artist was actually sitting right next to Leonardo and copying him stroke by stroke. The only difference in this painting is that it has brighter colors and takes on more of a feminine approach to the portrait. The Mona Lisa definitely shaped history and is known to everyone around the world!

It’s my favorite work for that reason, because it is so famous but yet no one really knows much about it. Da Vinci’s work has been so important because it has shown so much uniqueness and diversity for just one artist. His work has influenced other artists to try different styles and not just stick with one thing the whole time, using different styles gives you more options and helps artists find their true potential.
The Renaissance was a period of curiosity and discovery for many, but the man that truly defined a Renaissance man was Leonardo Da Vinci: a true genius who had the intellectual ability to create anything in his mind with his creativity and brilliance.

Hundreds of years later, he is still one of the most recognized and iconic people in the world, known for his paintings like the Mona Lisa and he changed the way art was created. But one success Da Vinci had that is not as well known as his iconic art such as the Last Supper were his inventions.
