In addition the studies he do involving the Earth’s moon are still somewhat used today by leading astronomers. Da Vinci even had designed and/or had sketched out versions of the submarine, the helicopter, and the armored tank and many other more simple inventions such as the alarm clock, snorkel, and a version of the robot.
Naseba Sumrein Mr Chad Jones Art 2 M/W April 9, 2018 Leonardo da Vinci Many historians throughout history and scholars regard Leonardo as the prime exemplar of the "Universal Genius" or “Renaissance Man”, an individual of “unquenchable curiosity” and “feverishly inventive imagination”, and he is widely considered one of the most diversely talented individuals ever to have lived.

Marco Rosci notes that “while there is much speculation regarding his life and personality, his view of the world was logical rather than mysterious, and that the empirical methods he employed were unorthodox for his time”. Born out of wedlock to a notary, Piero da Vinci, and a peasant woman, Caterina, in Vinci in the region of Florence, Leonardo was educated in the studio of the renowned Florentine painter Andrea del Verrocchio.

When viewing famous works of art, Bellini’s tend to make an appearance quite frequently. He came from a family of painters (theory says he worked with his father and a brother to get started with painting), even using his fathers style (late gothic graceful) of painting, as inspiration for his own works. His father introduced Giovanni to wood panel paintings, which later became a great asset to Giovanni’s career.

The first reason I think that da Vinci was the greatest artist of his age is because of his painting of “The Last Supper”. When da Vinci painted “The Last Supper”, he painted with human drama and he also included passion into the painting. Another interesting fact of Leonardo’s painting of “The Last Supper” is that, he painted with oil paints on dried plaster instead of painting on wet plaster. “The Last Supper” was said to have brought triumph and tragedy because within a few decades, the painting started to deteriorate. Although “The Last Supper” painting confirmed Leonardo to be the greatest artist of his age, his work did not stop there.

Although Newton is best known for his work on gravity he also had many physical inventions.
