What is the nature and function of Leonardo da Vincis' drawings
Weegy: Leonardo da Vinci was an artist who sought an understanding beyond superficial analysis. He sought to understand every aspect of the universe. [ Science was meant as a means of perfecting his art, but over the course of his lifetime, the scientist in Leonardo began to consume the artist.

As in every discipline in which he practiced, his anatomical studies represent a knowledge that was far in advance of his contemporaries. At a time when society was trying to wake up from the Dark Ages, Leonardo da Vinci was a man who awoke early.
