Leonardo da Vinci
We found many techniques in Leonardo’s paintings.
Multifaceted, he explored painting, anatomy, engineering, civil engineering, optics and even hydrodynamics.
His paintings reflect his specialized knowledge of the human body, optics and staging. The analyzes we carried out on these tables reveal that he tested until perfection.
By infrared analysis, we discover that he was testing the position of the hands.
By analyzing the dimensions and the geographic positions in the paintings, we can see that he was looking for perfection in proportions.
By analyzing the light contrasts, we find a search for the enhancement of a particular point, as we do today in photography.
Leonard’s paintings are therefore aesthetic masterpieces by this contribution of technique, which may explain this enthusiasm of the public.
