Leonardo da Vinci began his painting career in about 1469.
In about 1503, Leonardo began painting the Mona Lisa.
This specific painting has survived through the ages to now be one of the most famous paintings.
In 1500, Leonardo departed from Milan, and in 1501 displayed a sketch of what he planned to be Virgin and Child with Saint Anne.
In Virgin and Child with Saint Anne, Leonardo created an image that brought even more new ideas into the world, for example, having a very barren background, and putting most the focus on the family.
Leonardo da Vinci was the ideal Renaissance man. He was an artist, genius, engineer, sculptor, inventor and an architect.
He created and formed new ways of art, and introduced the starting of modern inventions.
Leonardo was a intellectual person, who was conversational, handsome and sophisticated socially.
Leonardo provided his time period with artwork, scientific notes, inventions and many other things, that has made him last through time.
