Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci was born in Vinci part of the Republic of Florence, today part of Italy, on April 15, 1452 at 3:00am. 567 Years ago one of the worlds greatest artist, scientist, architect and engineer was born. His mother and father were not married, and because she was of a lower class, he was raised by his father. He was the quintessential Renaissance man. I have been lucky enough to see a few of his works in person and up close, I hope to see more as time goes on. Happy Birthday to Leonardo da Vinci, wherever you may be.
