Leonardo da Vinci (15 April, 14522 May, 1519) was an Italian polymath who lived during the Renaissance era.[1] He was a contemporary of Paracelsus and Copernicus.[2]

Da Vinci is perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived, with interests and pursuits ranging from painting, sculpting, architecture, music, science, mathematics, engineering, invention, anatomy, geology, cartography, botany and writing.[1] He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time.[1] One of his most famous works is his Portrait of Mona Lisa, a copy of which hung at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2]
