Leonardo Da Vinci's paintings are considered to be the best in the world and priceless which led the pathway to painters creating lifelike paintings with emotion. Overall, Leonardo Da Vinci has been described as the archetype of the "Renaissance man" and as a universal genius, a man infinitely curious, infinitely inventive, and infinitely influential to the modern world. Leonardo Da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452, in Vinci, Italy in poor family as his father was a painter himself and his mother a peasant girl. He grew up in his father's home and had 17 siblings. As a child, Leonardo was heavily interested in books which were supplied by family and friends; he was also quickly exposed to the long standing tradition of painting in his family.

Michelangelo is regarded as the most influential genius of the Renaissance. His works are viewed as some of the greatest achievements of human history. His accomplishments in life have left behind a lasting legacy which altered the way humanity saw and recognized art. In order to better understand Michelangelo a person must examine his life, genius, and impact. The life of Michelangelo is one of the most important parts of history.
Although he is known more prominently as the greatest artist who ever lived da Vinci was a polymath, a man of many skills most of which are shadowed by the popularity of his works of art. Among the things he is not known as well for da Vinci was an excellent scientist. Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was born out of wedlock on April 15, 1452, in Vinci, Italy to his father Messer Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a 25 year old notary, and his mother a peasant girl named Caterina. Da Vinci’s father took custody of him soon after he was born, his mother moved to a different town with her new spouse. Eventually, between his mother and father da Vinci had a total of 17 half brothers and sisters (“Renaissance Man,” n.d.).
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. He was an inventor, a scientist, a mathematician and a painter who had the mind and visions of a thinker centuries ahead of his time. 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. Although he created many inventions in his time, much of Leonardo Da Vinci's genius achievements in his creations, sketches, and ideas of inventions were unfortunately found centuries after his death therefore resulting in a minor impact on world history.
These ideas sparked the flame of this man’s life forever. To make many of the greatest inventions and art in the world he used these quotes to become smarter and more imaginative. Leonardo da Vinci's inventions and art have made him one of the most acclaimed intellectuals of his time. Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in the town of Vinci in the territory of Florence. He was the son of Messer Piero Frusino di Antonio da Vinci and Catarina.
Leonardo lived in Anchiano for about five years until he settled to Vinci to live with his Grandfather. From this time he was a member of his fathers family, but he was never legitimated. Leonardo attended school and lived in Vinci until 1466. At the age of 14 Leonardo moved to Florence where he began an apprenticeship in the workshop of Verrocchio. Andrea del Verrocchio was, at the time, the most gifted artist in Florence.
Leonardo da Vinci was a very well-known and extremely talented artist in his time. Not only was he an artist but, also an architect, inventor, and chronicler of science (Zimmermann). Throughout his life he created many beautiful works of art. As an inventor he researched objects of interest to see exactly how they performed and tried to figure out the exact science involved. That being said, not only was he an artist, he also personified the enlightened age prevalent in Europe at the time.
Many people would say that Leonardo was one of the best painters of all time if not the best. Leonardo started painting as a young boy and his father could see his talent for art especially because he was still at a very young age. Leonardo and his father who was named Ser Piero da Vinci travelled to Florence there was only one real reason for this so Leonardo could be an apprentice to the artist Verrocchio. Throughout this time Leonardo would have learnt all of his techniques and styles from his role models. The role models that would have entered this workshop at the time would have been the well-known painters such as Domenico Ghirlandaio, Perugino, Botticelli and many more.
For several generations, his family had been small-scale bankers in Florence, the bank had failed and his father, Ludovico briefly took a government post in Caprese. Several months after Michelangelo’s birth, his family moved to Florence, Italy, when he was raised. At the age of six years old, Michelangelo lost his mother due to illness. He then moved in with a stonecutter and his family, who worked for Michelangelo’s father on a small farm. It was the stonecutter who first got Michelangelo interested in sculpture.
