Leonardo Da Vinci (April 15, 1452—May 2, 1519) was born out of wedlock in Vinci in the region of Florence. For his family fact about Da Vinci, his mother was just a peasant woman as his father was a rich man as a notary. He was educated in the studio of renowned Florentine painter, but he was not only a painter later, he was an Italian Renaissance polymath—He was also a sculptor, an architect, a musician, a mathematician, an engineer, an inentor, an anotomist, a geologist, a cartographer, a botanist, and a writer. We know that his genius was, and is, more than that of any other figures, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Another fact about Da Vinci was that he  had often been described as a archetype, a man who with “unquenchable curiosity”and “feverishly inventive imagination”Acording to the art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without percedent and “his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote. ”But Marco Rosic states that while there is much speculation about Leonardo, his vision of the world os essentially logical rather than mysterious, and that the empirical methods he employed were unusual for his time.
Da Vinci was, and is, renowned primarily as a painter. The Renaissance humanism recognized no mutually exclusive polarities between the science and the art, and we should say that both of them were contributed to his paintings. According to his workshis oil painting “Mona Lisa” was the most famous and is regarded as the most parodied portrait now. And “The Last Supper”, was the most reproduced religious oil painting of all time. Nevertheless, one main fact about Da Vinci why he was revered for his paintings,  was his technological ingenuity. He has a broad conception beyond that time, he was able to conceptualised a helicopter, a tank, a calculator, the concentrated solor power, and the double hull, and he also outlined a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics. Unfortunately, only a few of designs were constructed at that time, and most of them were not feasible, so that a very few of his paintings spread. Some of his smaller inventions, for instance, ab automater bobbin winder and a machine for testing the tensile strength of wire, entered the world of manufacturing unheralded. He also made some important discoverues in anatomy, civil engineering, optics and hydrodynamics, but they had no direct influence on later science for he did not publish those findings.
Da Vinci’s painting we know the most is the “Mona Lisa”, finally owned by Salai at the time of Leonardo’s death. Salai, whose full name was Gian Gicomo Caprotti de Oreno. Salai entered Leonardo’s household in 1490, but he didn’t get along with Leonardo,  and Leonardo made a list of his misdemeanours only after a year, and calling him “a thief, a liar, stubborn, and a glutton”after he had made off with money and valuableson at least five occasions and spent a fortune on clothes. However, Leonardo treated him with a great indulgence and he reminded in Leonardo’s home for the next thirty years. Leonardo taught him a great deal of painting, but his works were generally considered to be of less artistic merit than others among Leonardo’s pupils. In Leonardo’s will when he died, he left the “Mona Lisa” for Salai, and in his will it was an exceptionally high valution for a small panel portrait for it was assessed at 505 lire.
