Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 - May 2, 1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath, painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer.

His genius perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Many of his artwork had appeared in many Disney movies and television shows. For example, the Mona Lisa appears in Timon & Pumbaa, the Aladdin series, the Gummi Bears, Quack Pack, Flubber, and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure and "The Last Supper" in the American Dragon: Jake Long episode "A Befuddled Mind". He even appeared in It's Tough to Be a Bird for studying how birds fly for his works.
