Over 500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci conceived possibilities far beyond the understanding of others. His ideas about anatomy, mechanics and flight reveal a man of extraordinary vision.
Da Vinci lived during the Italian High Renaissance, a period of great cultural change and achievement. His paintings influenced Italian art for more than a century after his death. His studies in optics, biology, anatomy and physics anticipated many of the developments in modern science.
