500 years ago Leo from Vinci passed away....

Recommended Posts

2nd May 1519.

Not a guitarist of course. Just thought it worthwhile mentioning here and, perhaps, thinking about the overall quality of his personal 'contribution'.........

Thanks for everything, L-d-V!

An excellent 'retrospective' on BBC 4.....presented by the distractingly desirable Fiona Bruce.....[glare]

 

Difficult to 'get one's head around' Leonardo's allround genius and contribution to world knowledge , understanding of nature, engineering, art etc etc...…

 

Iconic paintings and drawings which have become part of the international psyche.....:blink:

Who was the Pope who said in frustration about him? " This man will never accomplish anything. He thinks of the ending before the beginning."

No that was the other Leonardo - the film star.

 

He said you went down quicker than the Titanic [biggrin]
