THE LEONARDO CONNECTION
One of Leonardo’s earliest and most promising sketches was a highly detailed drawing of the Tuscan landscape near his home. Da Vinci merged his studies of abstract geometry into a beautiful design for buildings. It also incoporated ideas of circulation he gained from studying the human body.
