This year marks the 500th Anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. We'll mark the occasion by looking at the science and technique behind his timeless masterpieces, from the Mona Lisa and Last Supper to the incredible accomplished drawings in his notebooks. With newly published information from the recent biography by Walter Isaacson, we'll see how Leonardo's unquenchable desire to understand the laws underlying nature made his art the most accomplished of his day, and irreplaceable for ours.
