Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was the quintessential renaissance
man : artist, mathematician, scientist and engineer.  He was a great lover of geometry, and devoted much time to it starting in his early forties.  His most outstanding polyhedral accomplishment is the illustrations for Luca Pacioli’s 1509 book “The Divine Proportion”.
