Leonardo da Vinci
Italian Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) is widely considered one of the greatest painters and most diversely talented individuals of all time. He made vast contributions to mathematics, biology, anatomy, physics, engineering and architecture, but is most acclaimed for his artistic achievements. His female figures, such as “La Scapigliata,” presented woman in a groundbreaking manner—as intelligent beings and biological equals to men. These revolutionary notions, as well as his many other innovations epitomize da Vinci as a genius infinitely ahead of his time.
