Assignment 5

                               (Read the questions at the end of this Assignment  before you watch the video)

READ

Born Lionardo di ser Piero da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci, (Italian: “Leonardo from Vinci”) (born April 15, 1452, Anchiano, near Vinci, Republic of Florence [Italy]—died May 2, 1519, Cloux [now Clos-Lucé], France), Italian painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect, and engineer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. His Last Supper (1495–98) and Mona Lisa (c. 1503–19) are among the most widely popular and influential paintings of the Renaissance. His notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of their time.

               Excerpt taken from Britannica Online

               https://www.britannica.com/biography/Leonardo-da-Vinci

 

According to Jeffrey Brown

“Leonardo da Vinci thought of painting as a science, even the greatest science, requiring constant research and experimentation.”
