As a scientist, Leonardo da Vinci had the intuition that plants were nourished by the sun. As a painter, he also thought that the sun gave them life. Leonardo studied the play of light on plants in great detail.
In his paintings trees are always backlit and “vibrate” with infinite nuances in the shadow and light.
