Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was the archetypal example of the Renaissance Man: l'Uomo Universale. As a Renaissance ideal he engaged in almost every art and science from painting to composition and from philosophy to chemistry. Leonardo was born in the Tuscan mountain town of Vinci as the illegitimate son of a farm girl and a Florentine notary. He started as an apprentice to Verrocchio and rose to become an independent painter with his own studio.
The Mona Lisa is the masterpiece and Da Vinci's prodigious talents as a Renaissance artist.
