Leonardo da Vinci, the celebrated Italian artist, is best known for creating some of the most famous artworks of the golden Renaissance era back in the 15th century. His genius also extended to maths, science and inventing, but it is his artwork that truly shines.
His style was all about bringing the power of observation and detail to a range of scenes. Whether he was painting celestial pictures of angels, studies of animals or self-portraits, his attention to detail brings his paintings to life.
Inspired as much by the beauty of nature as his spiritual beliefs, Leonardo da Vinci artwork covers a wide range of subjects, from the down-to-earth to the heavenly. Take a look at our selection of da Vinci art to find your favourite.
