Leonardo da Vinci.

Leonardo was an inventor, artist, musician, architect, engineer, anatomist, botanist, geologist, historian and cartographer. Scientists have now reconstructed his face. They marveled at his beauty.

Although his artistic output was small, Leonardo’s the influence was great, reflecting his deep knowledge of the body, extensive studies of light and the human face, and the sfumato technique, which made it possible to create incredibly realistic images. Leonardo da Vinci considered artists to be divine disciples and wrote: “We can be called the grandsons of God through our art.”

Leonardo was born out of wedlock on April 15, 1452. His father Piero he was a wealthy notary and a mother Caterina she was a local country girl.

Although the circumstances of his birth placed Leonardo at a disadvantage in terms of education and inheritance, this did not in any way affect his success.

Instead of becoming a notary like his father, Leonardo was able to fully develop his genius. People believe that it also gave him a strange sense of urgency to create his own identity and make a name for himself.

Leonardo created some of the most beautiful works of art in the world, including the paintings “The Last Supper” and “Mona Lisa”. He was known in his day as an extremely attractive person. Scientists have now reconstructed his face to reveal his true beauty.

They marveled at his beauty

One of Leonardo’s biographers describes him as a person of “extraordinary physical beauty who displayed infinite grace in everything she did”.

One contemporary described him as “a well-built, graceful and handsome man” who “wore a pink tunic” and had “beautiful curly hair that was always carefully styled and reached halfway down his chest”.

Leonardo’s mind was extraordinarily fertile, but at the same time he was also an inveterate procrastinator and even a teetotaler. He often took months or years to begin work on commissions, sometimes delaying patrons with grandiose statements about his creative process.

Soon after the King of France Francis I in 1516 he conquered Milan, Leonardo entered his service and spent the last years of his life in a house near the royal residence. When Leonardo died on May 2, 1519, at the age of 67, it is said that the king, who loved listening to Leonardo’s conversations so much that he was almost never separated from him, cradled his head as he breathed his last.

Only occasionally, however, does it happen that one of them is perhaps miraculously endowed with beauty, grace, and talent in such abundance that he leaves other people far behind. Leonardo da Vinci was exactly like that.
