ART OF RENAISSANCE EUROPE:

THE TITANIC WORKS OF LEONARDO AND RAPHAEL



Man. A sketching by Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) and symbol of the Renaissance Era

Mister Ford and Messers Wright by about 400 years

He even dreamt of flying in the cosmos, predating spaceflight by about 450 years

The Vision of Constantine: A cross of fire and a message, 'In this sign, conquer.' Early 300's
