He was left-handed and dyslexic All his life he would make spelling mistakes because he didn’t have a proper education He was vegetarian Leonardo enjoyed purchasing caged birds so that he could set them free
He only did around 20 paintings He had more than 4100 sheets full of drawings and notes of ideas for new inventions It took him until his death to keep on touching up Mona Lisa’s lips (16 years)
Mom: Simple peasant, Caterina Dad: rich notary, Ser Piero da Vinci His parents didn’t marry He grew up and was educated* with his dad *He went to school but never had a very “deep” education: he never learned Latin and was very bad at spelling
The flying machine Aerial Screw (early helicopter) Machine that could transport water (up hill) A sort of car that runs using small gears
He was a scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and a writer.
Scissors (not invent just made them more famous & improved them) Parachutes Anatomy studies (human body studies) Lots of engineer things IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT SCISSORS AND PARACHUTES!!!
Da Vinci became famous because he was an apprentice to Andrea del Verrocchio, who was the best painter and sculptor of his time. Since people knew Verrocchio, they began to know Leonardo. At first, Da Vinci helped Verrocchio with some of his paintings He then became an independent master He made his first scientific drawing not so long after he became a master
There are many hypothesis: He didn’t have enough money He didn’t have enough materials He tried but it was too risky so he abandoned
Here are MY hypothesis: He wasn’t aloud by the government He tried in secret so he may have succeeded but he maybe wanted to keep it to himself BUT he died maybe earlier than he had planned so he didn’t have time to show everyone
Da Vinci was ahead of his time (Really?! A helicopter in the Renaissance!!! THAT’s kinda cool!)
