Leonardo da Vinci: 

Leonardo da Vinci

The scientist: 

The scientist He was an Italian polymath , regarded as the epitome of the " Renaissance Man ", displaying skills in numerous diverse areas of study. Whilst most famous for his paintings such as the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper , Leonardo is also renowned as a scientist, engineer and inventor. The areas of his scientific study included aeronautics , anatomy , astronomy , botany , cartography , civil engineering , chemistry , geology , geometry , hydrodynamics , mathematics , mechanical engineering , optics , physics , pyrotechnics and zoology

The life: 

The life His early life was spent in the region of Vinci, in the valley of the Arno River near Florence . . In 1466, Leonardo was sent to Florence to the workshop of the artist Verrocchio , in order to learn the skills of an artist . At the workshop, as well as painting and drawing , he learnt the study of topographical anatomy . He was also exposed to a very wide range of technical skills such as drafting , set construction , plasterworking , paint , chemistry , and metallurgy .

While the full extent of his scientific studies has only become recognized in the last 150 years , he was , during his lifetime , employed for his engineering and skill of invention . Some of his smaller inventions entered the world of manufacturing unheralded . As an engineer , Leonardo conceived ideas vastly ahead of his own time , conceptually inventing a helicopter , a tank, the use of concentrated solar power , a calculator , and so on.

Leonardo's most famous drawing, the Vitruvian Man, is a study of the proportions of the human body, linking art and science in a single work that has come to represent Renaissance Humanism. :

Leonardo was profoundly observant of nature, his curiosity having been stimulated in early childhood by his discovery of a deep cave in the mountains and his intense desire to know what lay inside. His earliest dated drawing , 1473, is of the valley of the Arno River, where he lived . It displays some of the many scientific interests that were to obsess him all his life, in particular geology and hydrology .

Leonardo's training was primarily as an artist, it was largely through his scientific approach to the art of painting, and his development of a style that coupled his scientific knowledge with his unique ability to render what he saw that created the outstanding masterpieces of art for which he is famous. : 

Leonardo's training was primarily as an artist , it was largely through his scientific approach to the art of painting , and his development of a style that coupled his scientific knowledge with his unique ability to render what he saw that created the outstanding masterpieces of art for which he is famous . Leonardo's experimentation followed clear scientific method approaches , and his theorizing and hypothesizing integrated the arts and particularly painting ; these , and Leonardo's unique integrated , holistic views of science make him a forerunner of modern systems theory and complexity schools of thought .

The anatomy study: 

The anatomy study Leonardo also dedicated to anatomy of the human body and started drawing parts of the human body such as muscles and tendons and familiarising himself with the mechanics of the various parts of the skeletal and muscular structure .

Some of these drawings, generally referred to as "caricatures", on analysis of the skeletal proportions, appear to be based on anatomical studies. :

The dream of Leonardo: 

The dream of Leonardo In the late 20th century , interest in Leonardo's inventions escalated . There have been many projects which have sought to turn diagrams on paper into working models . One of the factors is the awareness that , although in the 15th and 16th centuries Leonardo had available a limited range of materials , modern technological advancements have made available a number of robust materials of light-weight which might turn Leonardo's designs into reality. This is particularly the case with his designs for flying machines .
