Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was one of the most acclaimed artists of the Renaissance, and was most famous for the way he used light in his paintings. Not only was he a painter but also an architect, inventor and passionate of all things scientific. Largely self-educated, he filled dozens of notebooks with sketches of many inventions, observations and theories on anatomy and aeronautics, however many of these concepts were difficult to interpret. As a result, although known as a truly great artist, many of his fellow artists did not fully appreciate his genius, which was a combination of his imagination, intellect and artistry that allowed him to create inventions such as the helicopter, bicycle, and airplane based on the flying capabilities of a bat (at least what he put onto paper.)
