Leonardo DaVinci



Throughout history there have been many people who have affected the way we live today.
Some of these people have devised laws, created machines, or sculpted artwork. Leonardo
DaVinci is one of these people. He was a painter, sculptor, inventor, musician,
architect, scientist, and military engineer.

Leonardo DaVinci was born on April 15, 1452 in the town of Vinci. At the age of nineteen
he traveled to Florence to be an apprentice in the studio of Verrocchio. While he was
there he began his painting career. His most famous pieces of works are “The Last
Supper,” “Madonna and Child with St. Anne,” “Mona Lisa,” and “Self-Portrait.” DaVinci
also painted the “Battle of Anghiari,” the “Leda.” These two pieces of work are not very
famous, but they are most important.

Sculpting was a pastime that DaVinci cherished. His two great sculptures are the giant
equestrian statue of Francesco Sforza and the monument for Marshal Trivulzio. Both of
these sculptors were not finished.

Throughout his life he invented many objects. DaVinci did not build many of the things he
drew. He compiled all of his drawings in the “Codex Madrid.” Many people discovered his
drawings and created replicas of his works.
