Inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci

Although best known for his paintings, The Last Supper (1495) and The Mona Lisa (1503), the Italian born 15th century great master and genius Leonardo Da Vinci is one of, if not the most well-known artist in the world. Born in 1452, Da Vinci achieved so much in his lifetime   before his death in 1519. Da Vinci played a foundational role in the Italian Renaissance movement that marked the end of the Middle ages and the advent of what can be described as modernity. This Europe-wide movement was founded upon the ideology of the revival of classical models from Ancient Greece. Its effect was multicultural, influencing a society's architecture, painting, literature, music, scientific discovery and philosophy.

To document Da Vinci's career: he was a committed artist but first and foremost he was a resolute academic committing his lifetime immersed in the fields of architecture, mechanics and human anatomy. As his work suggests, Da Vinci's passion for human anatomy was incessant. His legacy has continued to influence the field of modern science even five centuries after his death.

In his artistry, Da Vinci's work appears muted as he chose a color palette of earthy browns, greens, and blues within a narrow tonal range. This achieves a sense of unison in his painting with no strong contrasting colors or tones that appear shocking to the eye. Leonardo's mastery of “chiaroscuro," an Italian term meaning “light/dark" is an artistic trait that has been much replicated as other artists follow in his style. Here are some artists such as Thomas Dellert, Marc Mirkovitch and Jose Cacho who follow in DaVinci's wake, embodying the great master's strong sense of mathematical dimensions, immaculate proportionality and perfect symmetry. Go check out these modern artists inspired by the great master of European art!
