Leonardo Da Vinchi collaborated with Marcantonio della Torre, an anatomist from the University of Pavia. Their collaboration is important because it marries the artist with the scientist. Similarly, Marie Curie's husband stopped his original research and joined Marie in hers.

If 'is' and 'marries' are changed into 'was' and 'married', what is the difference?


Since the collaboration started in the past, the appropriate way should be to use was and married.

  • So, are you saying that their collaboration is no longer important? – Davo Apr 24 at 11:24
