Leonardos desire to paint things realistically was bold and fresh, and eventually became the standard for painters who followed in the 16th century

Went beyond his teaching by making a scientific study of light and shadow in nature

Known as chiaroscuro, this technique gave his paintings the soft, lifelike quality.
