“Jump” Paintings by Isca Greenfield-Sanders
So here’s a tidbit. Leonardo da Vinci’s mother is believed to have been an Arabic slave. Studies of Leonardo’s finger prints reveal a pattern found in people of this lineage and further investigation of the details of his birth support the theory. While this is fascinating I was even more intrigued to learn that he was also a vegetarian. The guy was both multicultural AND progressive.
Among this polymath’s catalogue of conceptual inventions is the parachute. 100 years later Renaissance stunt man Faust Vrancic mustered the courage to build one and alight from a tower in Venice.
Isca Greenfield-Sanders makes it all look like a breeze.

olives. they ate lots of olives, and other foods cured in olive oils. Wonder what reasons he gave for being a vegetarian? Nice paintings, but the leonardo info was really interesting.
I love how flat some of them are. It’s inspiring for me. Sometimes less is more.
What kind of greasy stuff does a Renaissance vegetarian eat? Olive oil french fries?
He ate alot of greasy stuff while he scribbled down inventions so they lifted it from the papers!!!
These are lovely…but how did we get DaVinci’s fingerprints??? Have a great day. Thanks for posting!
Fun thoughts. Might be good for my summer house. Thanks for sharing these ArtStormer!
