Leonardo da Vinci was born in Vinci, Italy on April 15, 1452. He is perhaps most famous for his paintings, the Last Supper and the Mona Lisa, but his accomplishments go far beyond the realm of art. He left drawings of inventions such as aircraft, anatomical structures, hydraulic tools, such the hydrometer, and an underwater diving suit, thus proving his genius as a scientist. He routinely wrote in mirror script, so his writings could only be read in a mirror. Leonardo da Vinci lived for 67 years; he died on May 2, 1519, in France.

Leonardo da Vinci is one of the greatest geniuses to have ever lived. He was a master painter, draftsman, engineer, inventor, mapmaker, and observer of the natural world. He studied anatomy, physics, biology, and mathematics. His paintings are breathtakingly beautiful and he conceived scientific principles and applications of those principles that were way ahead of his time.
