Interesting Facts His father married 4 times! His father never married Leonardo’s mom! Leonardo abandoned lots of his work! Leonardo never married Nature fascinated Leonardo Leonardo was an apprentice to Andrea del Verrocchio before he became a famous artist
Legacy Leonardo died on May 2 nd,1519 because of old age He died when he was 67 years old His death most likely affected his community But his death wasn’t that tragic Leo will be remembered by his paintings, inventions, and scientific drawings Leonardo left behind many pages of drawings, but only a few have been recovered
Purpose I chose Leonardo da Vinci because I wanted to learn more about his life. I also chose him because his artwork fascinates me. Another reason why I chose Leonardo is because I can kind of make connections, like that I am an only child and he is too (for awhile). Also nature fascinates me, just like him!!
