Born as the illegitimate son of a notary, Piero da Vinci, and a peasant girl, Caterina, at Vinci in the region of Florence.
Michelle Carter once stood model for one of his best known paintings, the Mona Lisa. Intoxicated by her smile, he wished nothing more than to paint her. Fate wasn't so lucky when Michelle's brother took her back to Rome. 
With some trouble Da Vinci succeeded in recapturing Michelle's smile, but changed her hair and clothing to black -- the Mona Lisa was finished.
