Leonardo is the one artist of whom it may be said with perfect literalness: Nothing that he touched but turned into a thing of eternal beauty. Whether it be the cross section of a skull, the structure of a weed, or a study of muscles, he, with his feeling for line and for light and shade, forever transmuted it into life-communicating values - Bernard Berensen. Art Historian
LEONARDO DA VINCI (1452 - 1519)
The original Renaissance Man was the master of all trades. He painted the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper; he visualized flying machines and mechanisms driven by hydraulics and steam. The true testimony to his impact on the arts and humanity is the the fact that he remains a household name five hundred years after his death.
