Leonardo da Vinci [1452-1519]

After the restoration before "Last Supper" (the left) restoration (the right)
It was born in Italy for 1,452 years. I am apprenticed to the Verrocchio of the famous painter, sculptor of Florence early in the teens and acquire the basics of overall art by experience. It is detected as a painter before long and becomes independent. I continue making an effort in a sculpture, a building, performing arts, astronomy, the various fields including the mathematics at the same time to produce a picture and show talent. It is also called "all-around person", and it is counted for renaissance three by one of the great great masters. The influence that I gave the painter of the coming ages including the device of perspective and the sfumato to be seen in "Last Supper" is immeasurable.
