Course Description

There are few historical figures that are more celebrated than Leonardo da Vinci, despite the fact that we know very little about him. He was a scientist before there was science, an inventor whose ideas were ahead of his time, and an artist who painted some of the most famous paintings in the world.

Gain insight into the life of this great Renaissance master as well as an understanding of his world through the historical and social context. Discuss his childhood, career and work. Explore Leonardo's interests and accomplishments in the fields of engineering, painting, architecture and anatomy. Examine many of his famous masterpieces including the Mona Lisa, Virgin of the Rocks, Lady with an Ermine, the Last Supper, and his notebooks and inventions.
