Leonardo was the illegitimate son of Messer Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a Florentine notary, and Caterina, a peasant who may have been a slave from the Middle East. Despite his humble beginnings, Leonardo was a man of unrivaled intellect. He is widely considered to be one of the world's greatest painters and arguably the most talented person ever to have lived. He was a mathematician, astronomer, biologist & unequaled inventor. His theories, paintings, designs, sketches & inventions have left an indelible mark on future civilizations. He was truly the quintessential renaissance man. Very few men that have come since have equalled his brilliance.

excerpt from Wikipedia: His notes and drawings display an enormous range of interests and preoccupations, some as mundane as lists of groceries and people who owed him money and some as intriguing as designs for wings and shoes for walking on water. There are compositions for paintings, studies of details and drapery, studies of faces and emotions, of animals, babies, dissections, plant studies, rock formations, whirlpools, war machines, flying machines and architecture.
