Da Vinci was known first as an artist with his most famous (and parodied) works of all time being the “Mona Lisa,” “Last Supper,” and “Vitruvian Man.”
He was a Renaissance man - an engineer, an anatomist, and a chronicler of science and nature.
Because of what we now know about da Vinci, he would be considered more of a scientist than artist due to the 7,000 pages of notes and observations he took during his life.
He could have been considered the greatest inventor of our time, but all of his devices were too complicated for his time to build, or too expensive to construct without a wealthy patron.
Admission to Da Vinci The Exhibition is $8.95 for all members.
