The golden number

All kinds of artists have used the golden ratio in art throughout the ages. One artist who, I think was influenced by the golden ratio and probably decided to use this concept in much of his art, was Leonardo Da Vinci. Da Vinci's talent as an artist may well have been outweighed by his talents as a mathematician. He incorporated geometry into many of his paintings, with the golden ratio being just one of his many mathematical tools.
