Leonardo da Vinci
Red Chalk on paper | ca. 1512
attributed to Francesco Melzi
562 years ago today, Leonardo was born in Anchiano, a tiny settlement outside of Vinci, and it was recorded by his grandfather Antonio da Vinci:
"1452. There was born to me a grandson, the son of Ser Piero my son, on the 15th day of April, a Saturday, at the 3rd hour [10.30pm] of the night. He bears the name Lionardo."
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONARDO!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONARDO!!! Q VQ

The man hours that must go into producing the fine detail in these works is almost inconceivable. One could get lost for hours on any one work’s lower half. The term exotic nightmare comes
to mind. Genius.
