Leonardo Da Vinci
Gareth Stevens Pub, 2003 - 48 pages
Leonardo da Vinci is considered one of the greatest minds of all time. Although he was celebrated as a great artist during his own lifetime, he is now thought of as a scientist, engineer, and inventor as well. He believed that his skills as an artist, however, were the most important and that art could lead to a perfect understanding of the world. Because of his tireless energy, restless curiosity, and multifaceted skills, he is remembered as a true Renaissance man. Book jacket.
