Leonardo Da Vinci was an Italian artist and inventor born in Tuscany in 1452. At the age of 15, he joined the Verrochio workshop where he trained in a range of disciplines (painting, sculpture, mathematics, decorative work).
In 1481, Leonardo left Florence for Milan, where he stayed until 1499. From 1506, he divided his time between Milan and Florence. In 1516, he accepted the invitation of François I, king of France, to move to the Manoir du Cloux, near Ambroise, now known as Chateau du Clos Lucé, where he was named "chief artist, engineer, and architect to the King". In His Majesty's own words: "You will be free here to dream, think and work."
Leonardo da Vinci died in 1519.
