Leonardo da Vinci Paintings and Drawings

ByDaniel Coenn

Leonardo, like his contemporary Christopher Columbus, possessed an insatiable curiosity and desire for discovery of unknown worlds. Only observation, says many times Leonardo, is the key to knowledge and understanding. Throughout his life Leonardo seeks to understand and control the nature. He constructed machines and original installations, built bridges, dissected human bodies and trying to break into the Providence of God. But the whole time Leonardo knows perfectly well that nature is unpredictable, and God's provision is inaccessible to the human mind. Advanced in years Leonardo left Italy to never to return there. Younger and more modern artists, such as Raphael and Michelangelo, already outshine his fame in the homeland. Leonardo recent years were not easy. Many of his ambitious plans remained incomplete. He could be called "Master of everything", everything that exists in the Universe, for his art and his inventions. Leonardo can be called the Son of God.
