Well...I was just mulling this one over with some friends the other day and the conclusion we came to was that Leonardo da Vinci can truly be described as a genius of the High Renaissance and the definitive Renaissance ‘polymath’. His genius as a painter, draughtsman, sculptor, architect, inventor and engineer exemplified the Humanist ideal.

Ok ok.....I lied.

Have a look below.

The last couple of links have a search function - so you can play around with that to find what you want.

For the original search on google I typed - "high renaissance critique"

There is alot of reading for you there

Good Luck
