NOVA: Decoding da Vinci Leonardo da Vinci was the quintessential Renaissance man, accomplished in engineering, fine art, and biology, among other disciplines. Today, his centuries-old "inventions" seem to predict our modern age: contraptions similar to parachutes, army tanks, hang gliders, and robots fill his notebooks. But the man and the techniques behind masterpieces like "Mona Lisa" remain a mystery. On the 500th anniversary of da Vinci's death, NOVA goes to Italy to explore his life and work. Then, in the basement of the Louvre, scientists and art restoration experts deploy cutting-edge technology to (digitally) peel back the layers of da Vinci's works. Ultimately, they'll reveal the impact of his science on his art and his art on his science.

Review by Shirleen on 08/20/20 review stating Ordering this program immediately for our grandchildren.
Intriguing, informative, challenging. Watched this with my husband (undeveloped artistic talent, long career as engineer/inventor). My talent and long career in the arts made this a PERFECT program to watch together. We paused the recording many times to share experiences and insights. Thought we knew a lot about da Vinci but now we want to try to explore his childhood.
