Leonardo Da Vinci

Hello Lars readers! Each summer, we love picking a fun biography or two to delve into, and this one doesn’t disappoint! Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson (master of biographies!) is an astoundingly thorough and colorful look at this “Renaissance Man”. Scientist, observer, engineer, and so much more, Leonardo was a complicated man who had a mind filled with curiosity and creativity that crossed disciplines. His art aided his scientific discoveries and vice versa. And if you can believe it, considering himself an artist or painter was actually LAST on his list of abilities! So grab a copy, follow along with us on Instagram, and learn something new this summer about the 15th and 16th centuries – a time of invention and innovation – and the people that adored Leonardo, his quirks, and his genius. Stay tuned for printables later this month! Enjoy!
