Leonardo da Vinci – Unisex t-shirt
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was an Italian polymath of the High Renaissance who worked as a painter, draughtsman, engineer, scientist, theorist, sculptor, and architect. He lived from 15 April 1452 to 2 May 1519. He gained notoriety for his notebooks, in which he produced sketches and notes on a variety of topics, including anatomy, astronomy, botany, painting, and paleontology, even though his popularity primarily stemmed from his accomplishments as a painter. Only his younger contemporary, Michelangelo, has made a greater impact to following generations of painters than Leonardo, who is widely recognized as a genius and the embodiment of the Renaissance humanist ideal.
He was schooled in Florence under the tutelage of the Italian painter and sculptor Andrea del Verrocchio. He was born out of wedlock to a prosperous notary and a lower-class woman in, or around, Vinci. He started out in the city but later spent a lot of time working with Ludovico Sforza in Milan. Later, he resumed his work in Florence and Milan, as well as for a brief period in Rome, all the while gaining a sizable fan base of imitators and students. He spent his final three years in France at Francis I’s invitation, where he passed away in 1519. Since his passing, his accomplishments, wide range of interests, personal life, and empirical thinking have never failed to arouse curiosity and admiration, making him an often-used moniker and cultural topic.
One of the finest artists in art history, Leonardo is frequently considered the father of the High Renaissance. He produced some of the most important paintings in Western art despite having many lost works and less than 25 major works that can be directly credited to him, including many unfinished ones. His most well-known piece and frequently recognized as the most well-known painting in the world is the Mona Lisa, his greatest effort. His drawing of the Vitruvian Man is also considered as a cultural symbol, and The Last Supper is the religious painting that has been copied the most often in history. Leonardo is credited with creating Salvator Mundi, which was sold at auction for US$450.3 million in 2017, breaking the previous record for the most expensive painting ever sold at a public auction.
He was revered for his technological prowess and invented the double hull, a form of armored war vehicle, concentrated solar power, flying machines, and ratio machines that could be utilized in addition to machines. Because current scientific methods for metallurgy and engineering were still in their infancy during the Renaissance, relatively few of his plans were built or even practical during his lifetime. But some of his minor creations—like an automated bobbin winder and a device for assessing the tensile strength of wire—entered the manufacturing sector unnoticed. He produced important discoveries in optics, tribology, hydrodynamics, geology, and civil engineering, but he never published his findings, therefore they had little to no immediate impact on subsequent science.
