Overview

This edition of Biography, the long running documentary series from A&E, explores the life of true renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci. A painter, sculptor, architect, and engineer, born in Vinci, Italy. In 1482 he settled in Milan, where he painted his Last Supper on the refectory wall of Santa Maria delle Grazie. In 1500 he entered the service of Cesare Borgia in Florence as architect and engineer, and with Michelangelo decorated the Sala del Consiglio in the Palazzo della Signoria with historical compositions. About 1504 he completed his most celebrated easel picture, Mona Lisa which now hangs in the Louvre in Paris. In 1506 he was employed by Louis XII of France. His notebooks contain original remarks on most of the sciences, including biology, physiology, hydrodynamics, and aeronautics. ~ John Patrick Sheehan
