Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was a man of many talents – a polymath who never got tired of learning. Born in the Republic of Florence but died in France, he spent his life learning new faculties, becoming a master of various art and science fields. Leonardo embraced the Renaissance and had a significant impact on the cultural change in European history. His talent, genius, and sophisticated knowledge were stepping-stones leading to the re-discovery of classical philosophy manifested in art with the emphasis on humanism. Da Vinci became a pivotal figure of the Renaissance, and his works are the eminent illustration of the transition from the Medieval Period to the Age of Discovery.
