  9. Leonardo da Vinci • Born in 1452 near Florence and died in 1519 in France Some feel this is a Self-portrait

  10. His Work • He painted the “Mona Lisa” around 1506 • It can now be found at the Louvre in Paris Mona was a polite way of saying “Madame” In climate controlled, bullet proof display

  11. He painted the “Last Supper” in 1498 (Church in Milan)

  12. From 1482-1499, he lived in Milan • 1499-1519 was his “Nomadic Period” • Mantua (1500) • Venice (1501) • Florence (1501-1506) • Milan (1506-1513) • Rome and Florence (1514) • Pavia, Bologna and Milan (1515) • France (1516-1519)

  13. He created over 13,000 pages of notes and drawings • Lacked formal education in Latin and Mathematics • Tried flying in 1496, but failed

  14. Leonardo also thought of early blueprints for weapons of war (against war) • Machine guns • Tank (driven by humans or horses) • Submarine • Flame thrower

  15. Leonardo’s tank design

  16. Leonardo also wrote from right to left and was left-handed • Maybe to make his notes harder to read • Would not smear the ink • Would pull the pen instead of pushing
