Leonardo da Vinci

By Abhinav School

Why was Leonardo da Vinci genius ?

Genius is the name given to those people who accomplish wonderful achievements. This is exactly what the Italian Sculptor, painter, and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) did. His painting technique had a lively effect on the people and influenced the later paintings. He dissected the dead and was the first person to draw the internal organs of the human body. He even studied technology and physics and drew diagrams of machines and means of transport, which became a reality many years later after the invention of steam engine. The left handed Leonardo da Vinci mostly wrote in mirror writing. He probably did this to encrypt his ideas, which often went against Christian teachings of his time.
