Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest artists the world has ever seen. His most well-known work, the "Mona Lisa", is the world's best-known work of art and his oeuvre stretches across oil paintings and drawings to inventions and he developments of ideas that were way ahead of his time. One of the great figures of the Italian Renaissance, Leonardo left a legacy that few have come close to emulating. These carefully selected images capture his mastery of the pen and brush and show why he is still revered nearly 600 years after he died in 1519.
