When he was about 15 years old Leonardo's father took him to Florence Italy, to train as a painter and sculptor in the studio of Andrea del Verroccho. He studied with this master until the age of twenty five. At this point, he set up his own business and was famous for being a painter and a man of science. As a scientist, he observed everything he could in nature. Leonardo used what he learned from nature and science to make his paintings look real.
Leonardo DaVinci was born near Florence, Italy in April 1452 and was raised by his father. He had an understanding of his skills at an early age, mastering art skills by the age of 15. While Leonardo was young, he worked with Andrea del Verrocchio and was quickly noticed as an apprentice that outshined his teacher. By the age of 20, DaVinci was accepted into the painter’s guild of Florence and was also an accomplished sculptor. One DaVinci was able to fine-tune his skills, he worked as a painter; however, he also worked on many drawings and sketches as well.
During a time when Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci were the prime artists in Europe, a young man by the name of Raffaello Sanzio was starting to attract major attention with his artworks. The Italian high Renaissance was marked by paintings expressing human grandeur and very humanistic values. No one better portrayed the Italian high Renaissance then Raphael Sanzio, with his painting’s clarity and ease of composition, Raphael was easily one of the greatest painters of this period. Born in an artistically influenced town in Italy called Urbino, Raffaello Sanzio was first taught by his father, Giovanni Santi, how to compose works of art at a very early age. At the age of fourteen, Raphael’s father realized his son’s potential and sent him to a very talented teacher by the name of Pietro Perugino.
Andrea del Verrocchio was, at the time, the most gifted artist in Florence. Leonardo worked at the workshop with some other famous artists like Botticelli, Perugino and Lornzo di Credi. In June 1472 Leonardo was listed with a membership in the painters guild of Florence an that ended his apprenticeship. But, Leonardo didn't leave the workshop of Verrocchio and the end of his a... ... middle of paper ... ... experimental science. In 1965 two previously lost notebooks were discovered in the National library of Spain, Madrid.
That being said, not only was he an artist, he also personified the enlightened age prevalent in Europe at the time. Da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452, in Vinci, Italy. His father, Ser Piero, was a prominent attorney notary, and his mother was a young peasant girl. The two conceived Leonardo out of wedlock. As a result, he was raised by his father and several stepmothers’.
He was accepted into painters guild in Florence. An early work by Leonardo was an angel painting for the Baptism of Christ artwork.After Verrochio viewed the artwork he thought it was time for Leonardo to move on and do other things. Later on Leonardo became an independent painer and later moved to Milan where he worked for Ludovico Sforza. During that time Leonardo created one of his most famous artworks The Last Supper. Later on his career he became a journalist in which he would write down his obeservations , and findings.
Donatello’s art was well like because it put forth a wide range of interest, from classical art to religion. Today, Donatello’s work remains in Florence, Italy, where it was created. Many people travel all over the world just to see his art because Donatello was a towering figure in the Renaissance. Overall, Donatello managed to influence Renaissance with the realism of his art, the effect him and his art had on others, and his revival of classical art. Without Donatello’s artworks present day would not be the same, not only did he influence artists of his own time, but he is still influencing artists of today.
After researching Botticelli, I think he is a great artist. He had a very positive attitude and always believed in himself. The minute he saw a painting of "Trinity Fresco" by Masaccio, he knew that he wanted to paint and become famous just like him. He was very influenced by his master when he was 15 years old, and was inspired by him. I think that all his paintings are beautiful, as the women figures he paints are so realistic with so much detail, particularly in the painting, "The Birth of Venus".
Over the time period of working with this goldsmith, he gave Sandro the nickname Botticelli which means “Little Barrel.” After a while he was able to convince his father to let him study painting. He did this by becoming an apprentice to the well known painter Fra Filippo Lippi. Fra Filippo Lippi was a well known painter and was known for how he used color on church altarpieces and helped Sandro discover his very own style of art that is equally famous. Botticelli was quickly recognized and soon became a very gifted artist all by himself. When he was 15 years old, he opened his workshop and was dedicated to his own work.
But most of all he was known for his impressive paintings that influenced the world. Leonardo was born in Anchiano, Italy on April 15, 1452, to Piero Da Vinci, a prominent public official in Florence, and a peasant woman named Caterina. He was born out of wedlock and shortly after his birth they were married, but not to each other. As an infant, Leonardo was cared for by other family members; his uncles, grandmother, and Aunts. Later, his father took him into his own house where he was forced to join and get along with half-brothers and half-sisters.
