This companion site to a museum exhibit in Florence, Italy, draws visitors into da Vinci's fascinating thought-processes that established a connection between laws of nature and principles of art. Filled with images of the master's sketches and paintings, accompanying commentary, and video, the site provides an intriguing glimpse into the art-science theme that dominated so many of his works.
