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. In fact, Leonardo considered art to be a science, once calling it "the Queen of all sciences", which provided not only a means of obtaining knowledge, but of sharing that knowledge with the rest of the world. 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. He also had an imagination that was not afraid of seeing what most would dismiss as the impossible. Instead, armed with his accumulated and growing knowledge earned through real experience and scientific experiment, he strove to recreate his fantasies in reality regardless of if other scholars in the same field could conceive such possibilities. ] (More)
