On this day, back in 1519, , the inventor of “The Vitruvian Man”, “Mona Lisa” and “The Last Supper” amongst other priceless works, has passed away.
Leonardo da Vinci was “l’uomo nuovo” of the Renaissance, the Genius of his time and the creator of many conceived for the very first time designs and inventions.
Art, he believed, is indisputably connected with science and nature. Art can inspire science and vice versa. The brilliance of his mind and his insatiable passion for inventions cannot be discounted and his work and legacy will inspire artists and scientists for years to come.
“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”- Leonardo Da Vinci- the true Rennaissance Man.
