Leonardo da Vinci

Updated: 7 Sep 2020
Scientist, painter, philosopher, anatomist, astronomer, engineer, inventor, courtier: Leonardo da Vinci is one of the greatest figures of the Renaissance. This book surveys the life and work of a unique genius, from his childhood in Italy to his death in France. More than a biography, it sets his life in the context of the great courts he visited: Medici Florence, ducal Milan, royal France. Written for both younger and adult audiences, it presents a readable discussion of Leonardo's complex art, life, and thought, explores his ground-breaking research in medicine, hydraulics, metal-casting, mechanics, painting techniques, architecture, and the new science of warfare and weaponry, and examines his place in intellectual and art history.

Considering that he is referred to as the “Da Vinci of Our Time.” - a nickname that he seems to approve of - it is fair to say that there are obvious parallels between RDJ’s Iron Man and the famous renaissance inventor.
