Leonardo di Ser Piero da Vinci (can we call him Leo?) was an Italian scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. Born in 1452 in Vinci, Italy (hence da Vinci, i.e. from Vinci). Leonardo apprenticed at the art studio of Verrocchio. According to one legend, when Leonardo and Verrocchio collaborated on a painting, Verrocchio found himself so outclassed by his apprentice that he abandoned art altogether.

* WolverinePublicity: A lot of art critics and theorists note that Leonardo tends to get this as a painter/inventor/scholar over that of other great painters, inventors and scientists of the Renaissance. It's often pointed out by more than a few that Leonardo was actually incredibly lazy and procrastinated on his commissions and the reason being less on his brilliance and more because he decided to dabble and try his hand at anything he set his mind to. In other words, Leonardo is not really a successful RenaissanceMan but someone who tried to be one. Compare that to Michelangelo, a poet, a sculptor and a painter. Michelangelo actually left complete works in multiple fields. As a painter, Leonardo was not so prolific with only a few major complete works (admittedly this includes ''The Mona Lisa'' and ''The Last Supper'' so yes, Leonardo does have permission to rest on his laurels).
