The List of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci gives a broad selection yet incomplete overwiew of the drawings by Tuscan polymath (architect, musician, anatomist, inventor, engineer, sculptor, geometer, and painter) Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) who made several hundred drawings during the Italian Renaissance. He had drawn portraits, objects, human anatomy, diagrams, animals, movements, and his inventions/ideas (each fictional and/or real). Most of his work are sketches and studies, some were preparations for his paintings. Leonardos drawings are considered as the first modern medical illustrations, too. Some paintings depict his dissections of human bodies.[1]

Far from being just a wild enthusiast making notes about everything possible, Leonardo is surprisingly specialized in his studies. Moreover, the basic themes which he chooses are guided by systematic principles. It is striking that only about 10% of Leonardo's extant notes are about the natural world. Nearly 90% of his notes are concerned with man-made worlds which can be divided into mental, represented and constructed worlds. Of these the mental world receives about 15% of his attention, the represented world approximately 20%, while the constructed world receives approximately 65% of his attention, if we judge on the basis of extant notes. Leonardo's study of nature focusses on three aspects: physical, biological and botanical. With respect to the physical world, he is guided by two interests: cosmology and physics.

His drawings are scattered all over the world, both in private and public collections. There is no central or official system for his drawing œuvre.[citation needed] Drawing techniques he used include ink on paper, pencil on paper, and chalk on paper. Most drawings are collected in manuscripts (Codici). Among his work are two drawn portraits of an old man that is supposed to be himself. His earliest dated drawing is Landscape of the Arno Valley (1473); his last known drawing was ... (151?). The Vitruvian Man and The Virgin and Child with St Anne and St John the Baptist are his most famous drawings. Lost drawings of Leonardo are ...
