During the Renaissance period artists combined their depictions of nature with
mathematical and scientific theories. The purpose of this paper is to analyze works of
Leonardo da Vinci in order to understand how artwork from the Renaissance period
incorporated these scientific theories and in order to find out if the theories were
incorporated in order to satisfy the curiosity of the artists and allow artists to provide
more accurate depictions of nature or to convey the connection between math and
science to nature to mainstream society.
