Top 10 facts
Reading some picture books about Leonardo da Vinci recently reignited my interest in him. What a genius! Not only did he paint the most famous portrait in Western civilization, but he relentlessly studied the way the world works and tinkered with countless inventions. Maybe these books will inspire you, too. Katie and the Mona Lisa is the fourth in an imaginative series, in which Katie climbs into different paintings in an art gallery. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.
Da Vinci was also a sculptor, an architect, a poet, a composer, a scientist, a mathematician and an inventor. Leonardo Da Vinci was a genius and perhaps one of the most remarkable men that has ever lived. Leonardo Da Vinci was undoubtedly ahead of his time, with incredibly forward-thinking ideas and discoveries. As a young boy, Leonardo enjoyed drawing and music. His father must have thought his son talented because he showed his drawings to an artist named Andrea del Verrocchio, who immediately recognised that Da Vinci should be trained as an artist.
