Leonardo da Vinci’s Creative Solution Spread
On This Day
Leonardo stole corpses from graveyards to study human anatomy. A compulsive draftsman, he filled scraps of paper with sketches, doodles, and drawings, about 4,000 of which survive to this day.
On this day in 1452, a peasant woman gave birth to an out-of-wedlock son who grew up to embody the Renaissance humanist ideal. A sculptor, inventor, mathematician, architect, botanist, musician, anatomist, writer, and one of the most famous painters of all time, her little bundle of joy was Leonardo da Vinci.
