Leonardo da Vinci - Drawings

"The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding." – Leonardo da Vinic

Leonardo da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) was the archetype of the Renaissance Man. His genius spans many interests employing methods unusual and pioneering during his time.
He was born out of wedlock to an Italian couple in the region of Florence. His art education was under the Florentine painter, Verrocchio. During his working life he spent years in Milan, Rome, Bologna and Venice. The last years of his life were spent in France.
Of course, there is much written about him and his accomplishments that seem to go on and on. How can one not be inspired by his art.  Below are a few samples of his rich drawings.
