Early Life of Leonardo da Vicni
This storyboard does not have a description.
On April 15, 1452, Leonardo da Vinci was born in a farmhouse just outside the village of Anchiano. As he grew up there, he received only basic reading, writing, ad mathematics instruction.
In 1466, he came to Florence Italy. A year later, he started his apprenticeship with me, Verrocchio. da Vinci was a natural from the start, and I taught him how to do metalwork, leather art, carpentry, drawing, painting, and sculpting.
In my apprenticeship, I was appointed to help my master, Verrocchio, paint The Baptism of Christ. I completed it so well that some say my master never painted again after that, which was, of course, an exaggeration.
In 1472, when I was 20, I joined a painters guild. I also studied more of architecture and took note on it. I had a special way of writing. I would write from right to left, and my letters would be backwards. This is called mirror writing.
In the August of 1473, Leonardo da Vinci made his first work. It was a pen and ink drawing of the Arno valley. This was the first piece he did entirely on is own.
The drawing of the Arno valley led to many of my other great works of art, the most famous ones being the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. Not only, did I effect the world of art, however, but I was also a scientist, mathematician, writer, inventor, and many other things.
