ARTIST: Leonardo Da Vinci:
(April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) 
Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance man, 
He had unquenchable curiosity was equaled only by his powers of invention.
He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.
According to art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and "his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote".
