Leonardo was born in Vinci, a village near Florence. In 1467, Leonardo entered Verrocchio’s studio and became a member of the Painter’s Guild. He worked with Verrocchio for several years, collaborating with him on paintings and working on commissions of his own. In 1478, Leonardo became an independent artist under the protection of Lorenzo the Magnificent. By 1482, Leonardo left Florence for Milan, where he stayed for nearly 20 years. He applied his talent to music, decorating, pageantry, portrait painting, and engineering projects, particularly of weapons for war and bridge construction.
