Leonardo da Vinci
Born in 1452 in Italy, Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest painters in the world and is well known in China. Most of the Chinese people born in the 1980s know him from an article called Painting Eggs in a Chinese elementary school textbook. His Mona Lisa became a muse to Chinese artists and there is a popular Chinese song called The Tears of Mona Lisa.
