Florence is home to some of the greatest artistic minds that the world has ever seen. And even if artists were not native Florentines, more often than not they came to this great city to study at some point in their lives. One of the greats of the Renaissance was Leonardo da Vinci and even now, over 500 years later, his works of art are still relevant. Born in the small Tuscan town of Vinci in the year 1452, da Vinci began studying art at a very young age (Jastifer 281). Da Vinci’s father Piero recognized his talents as a child and in the 1460s Piero brought his son into Florence to study art and join the schooling of Andrea Verrocchio.

In Milan he served at the same time as a military engineer, architect and artist,” says studyenglishtoday.net.
Such skill was and still is unsurpassed till this day in the 21st century.

I read this during the 3rd grade and, I found it really exciting because of his unique power which allowed him to speak to paintings. The way the author (Jenny Nimmo) wrote the book was for it to be a cliffhanger (from what I remember.) The book was also written in a way so that a 3rd grader would be able to read it and understand what is happening. What I really liked about the way it was written was that it made me feel like I was older then I really was.

In the painting, Mona Lisa “The woman looked as if she could come right out of the painting” The Mona Lisa is also remarkable because the half smile on her face puzzles viewers. Is she happy or mischievous? Amused or trying to be serious?
The setting that Church used was soothing based off the painting because after looking at the painting multiple times, I truly feel that I can go inside it. The interesting thing about this setting is that there was an art school at the time called The Hudson River School. Church was only 21 years old when he painted this magnificent piece on the canvas. With a mentor like Thomas Cole, Church became an elaborate artist at a young age who made many more paintings.
