Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519
Artist, scientist and thinker, he was the most versatile genius of the Italian Rennaissance. Leonardo was left handed and his notes were written backwards in mirror writing, from right to left.

"The mind of the painter, should be like a mirror which is filled with as many images as there are things placed before him."
