About the Book:
Leonardo da Vinci's Anatomical Atlas brings together the complete corpus of the artist's anatomical drawings held at the Royal Collection of Windsor.
These 300 images are accompanied by an artistic commentary by one of the leading international Leonardo scholars, Professor Martin Kemp of Oxford University, who illustrates the uniqueness of the stroke and the refined figurative transposition. One of the most renowned Italian Anatomists, Professor Mario Rende of the University of Perugia, analyses the significance of these works from a medical-scientific angle, revealing the insights, the research methodology and the experimental and analytical approach of the Genius of Vinci.
Moving between art and anatomy, between unsurpassed illustrative display and avant-garde Renaissance scientific research, the book provides an in-depth and comprehensive look at an indispensable aspect of the Great Master's story.
