Caption: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), Italian polymath. Montage of images showing the life and work of da Vinci, including his anatomical drawings, sketches, and inventions. Da Vinci was a polymath, inventor and author, working in areas as diverse as painting, sculpture, architecture, music, mathematics, engineering, anatomy, geology, cartography, and botany. He is often held up as the archetype of the Renaissance Man. He conceptualized flying machines, an armoured vehicle, concentrated solar power, an adding machine, and the double hull, also outlining a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics. He made important discoveries in anatomy, civil engineering, optics, and hydrodynamics, but he did not publish his findings and they had no direct influence on later science.
