Leonardo da Vinci

Mona Lisa
    Leonardo da Vinci was a great artist, but he also was smart when it came to things such as science, architecture, civil engineering, astronomy, anatomy, geography, geology, and paleontology. His biographer, Giorgio Vasari, once said:

    The most heavenly gifts seem to be showered on certain human beings. Sometimes supernaturally, marvelously, they all congregate in one individual...This was seen and acknowledged by all men in the case of Leonardo da Vinci, who had...an indescribable grace in every effortless act and deed. His talent was so rare that he mastered any subject to which he turned his attention...He might have been a scientist if he had not been so versatile.

Leonardo da Vinci had many accomplishments. His two biggest works include, "portrait of Lisa del Giocondo", or the Mona Lisa,and "last supper." Other than these, along with numerous other paintings, his art was a collection of sketches. These sketches all show that Leonardo da Vinci was very interested with science and he was a very good scholar, although he never attended public school.

    Leonardo studied fourteen different sciences. Da Vinci was left handed, although he was dyslexic, and he often tried painting with both hands. He was often considered weird, this is because Leonardo often destroyed his works before anyone even saw them. He was a painter, a sculptor, an architect, a mathematician, a mechanic, an astronomer, an anatomist, physiologist, botanologist, geologist, physician, a philosopher, a musician and a writer.
Besides these many things, da Vinci also worked with hydraulics, medicine and ballistics.
