  • “Leonardo da Vinci” Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci April 15, 1452 - May 02, 1519 "Mona Lisa" and "The Last Supper"
  • Leonardo da Vinci was concerned with the laws of science and nature, which greatly informed his work as a painter, sculptor, inventor and draftsmen. His ideas and body of work -- which includes Virgin of the Rocks,The Last Supper, Leda and the Swan and Mona Lisa -- have influenced countless artists and made da Vinci a leading light of the Italian Renaissance. Self-portrait in red chalk, Royal Library of Turin Circa 1512 to 1515
  • At the age of 14, da Vinci began apprenticing with the artist Verrocchio. For six years, he learned a wide breadth of technical skills, including metalworking, leather arts, carpentry, drawing and sculpting. By the age of 20, he had qualified as a master artist in the Guild of Saint Luke and established his own workshop.
  • Mona Lisa (also known as La Gioconda or La Joconde) is a sixteenth- century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel in Florence, Italy by Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci during the Renaissance. The work is currently owned by the Government of France and is on display at the Louvre museum in Paris under the title Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo. Arguably, it is the most famous and iconic paintingin the world. This is a sixteenth-century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel in Florence, Italy during the Renaissance.

  • Mona Lisa (also known as La Gioconda or La Joconde) is a sixteenth- century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel in Florence, Italy by Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci during the Renaissance. The work is currently owned by the Government of France and is on display at the Louvre museum in Paris under the title Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo. Arguably, it is the most famous and iconic paintingin the world. The painting is a half-length portrait and depicts a woman whose facial expression is frequently described as enigmatic. Others believe that the slight smile is an indication that the subject is hiding a secret.
  • The Last Supper specifically portrays the reaction given by each apostle when Jesus said one of them would betray him. All twelve apostles have different reactions to the news, with various degrees of anger and shock.
  • Leonardo began work on The Last Supper in 1495 and completed it in 1498—he did not work on the painting continuously. The beginning date is not certain, as the archives of the convent for the period have been destroyed and a document dated 1497 indicates that the painting was nearly completed at that date.
  • A drawing created by da Vinci in Circa 1490. It is accompanied by notes based on the work of the architect Vitruvius. The drawing, which is in pen and ink on paper, depicts a male figure in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and simultaneously inscribed in a circle and square. VITRUVIAN MAN Canon of Proportions or, Proportions of Man.

  • "The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding."
  • “Jan Vermeer” Johannes Vermeer October 31, 1632 - December 16, 1675 “Little Street” and “View of Delft”
  • For a long time relatively little was known about Vermeer's life. He seems to have been exclusively devoted to his art, living out his life in the city of Delft. In the 19th century the only sources of information were some registers, a few official documents and comments by other artists; it was for this reason that Thoré Bürger named him "The Sphinx of Delft"
  • The Procuress 1656 Oil-on-canvas painting which shows a genre scene in a brothel - one of the two women is the eponymous procuress while the figure on the left has been identified by some as a self portrait of the artist.
  • View of Delft is an oil painting painted ca. 1660-1661, the painting of the Dutch artist's hometown is among his most popular.
  • The Girl with the Wine Glass 1659-1660 painting by Johannes Vermeer, now in the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Braunschweig
  • 1664-65 Oil on canvas, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Young woman with a water pitcher
  • The Milkmaid An oil-on-canvas painting of a "milkmaid", in fact a domestic kitchen maid. It is now in the Rijksmuseu in Amsterdam, Netherlands, which regards it as "unquestionably one of the museum's finest attractions“.
  • Girl with a Pearl Earring This is considered a Vermeer masterpiece.
