Leonardo da Vinci. Artwork of an aging, bearded Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), Italian artist and inventor at work. Leonardo is most famous for his works of art, such as the Last Supper (1498) and the Mona Lisa (1504, seen here at centre). Despite having little formal education, he kept extensive notebooks filled with his scientific theories, inventions and architectural designs. His notes show that he carefully investigated principles of mechanical and civil engineering. His inventions included grinding and polishing machinery, and flying machines. Most of his projects were never published.
