Facts about daVinci:

da Vinci he was born April 15,1453 in a small village in Vinci which is 25 miles west of Florence. His father raised his son himself, when da Vinci was 15 his father introduce him to Andrea del Verrocchio who was a famous artist of Florence. This is what got daVinci into the art business. Leonardo spent most of his life in Milian and Florence, doing art work. In Florence in 1478 he set up he own studio, he did many of his paintings here and left many unfinished. da Vinci presented himself the duke of Milan because he was skilled in many crafts. His educated by a priest in his village home, he was taught him the basics and then taught himself the rest. His lifestyle was being raised by his dad and a mother later in his life. He loved at since he was 12 and since his dad brought him to Verrocchio. He created paintings and sculptures. I believe that Humanism is linked to him because he made his sculptures on what he belived and what he wanted
