ART Leonardo da Vinci and his art

Leonardo da Vinci ART
Great love springs from the full knowledge of the thing one loves; and if you do not know it, you can love it but little or not at all.
Leonardo da Vinci, Notebooks .

Leonardo da Vinci was born in the year 1452 in the small hill town of Vinci. His father was a successful notary and his mother a peasant woman.


The little town of Vinci has changed very little in 544 years since then. Stone houses are clustered together around the protective battlements of a castle. The tall church bell tower is still an important landmark which can be seen for miles. Vinci is surrounded by fertile farmland. The hillsides are planted with grape vines and fruit trees and patches of silvery green olive trees dot the landscape.

The slopes above Vinci lead to Mount Albano, a high peak where Leonardo later hiked and made observations about the atmosphere. Small mountain streams run down from the mountain past Vinci to the valley of the Arno River below.

For a curious boy who loved nature, the area around Vinci must have been a wonderful childhood home. Leonardo was free to explore the woods and streams and to study the insects, animals, and birds which he later sketched in great detail in his notebooks.

Leonardo's early fascination with nature clearly inspired the paintings he would create as an adult. The detailed and lifelike plants and wildflowers that he painted at the feet of the angel in The Annunciation and the rocky caves and pools of water surrounding the figures in The Virgin of the Rocks were created from observations and sketches he began making as a child in Vinci.

Leonardo da Vinci Code ?
da Vinci Code last supper
He had a keen eye and quick mind that led him to make important scientific discoveries, yet he never published his ideas.
He was a gentle vegetarian who loved animals and despised war, yet he worked as a military engineer to invent advanced and deadly weapons.
He was one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance, yet he left only a handful of completed paintings.
The da vince code and the mirror image - roll the mouse over the image and the reverse image can be seen at 50% transparency - according recent findings you can see a child and other "Codes" hidden by Leonardo da Vinci within the Last Supper fresco. To the far left is a monkey sat on the table top, either side of christ is what appears to be bug eyed monsters holding babies, the left one is clearer than the right, and Thomas is holding up two fingers. Make up your own mind. If you can see the code, go outside and look at the same cloud for ten minutes, you will probably see something hidden within, a code just for you, a personal message from God. If you can't see the message, or its a clear sky, then you must accept, God has no message for you today. So please try latter.
