The knowledgeable man I am going to tell you about is Leonardo Da Vinci. He was one of the three most outstanding and well known artists during the Renaissance. I have known about him since I was a little child at secondary school. One Chinese textbook had a long article on his artistic achievements and his status in history. But at that time I thought he was nothing more than a great artist. Then I came across his biography at the library and began to realize what a knowledgeable person he was.
His fields of interests involved sculpture, music, maths, astronomy and history. He made his own contribution to all these areas. He seems to be a genius from another universe, leaving us everyday people far behind. I admire his ingenuity and I think he is really talented. My knowledge is as trivial as ashes compared to his.
