About this book

This lavishly illustrated book chronicles the remarkable history of anatomical illustration from the Renaissance to the digital 'Visible Human' project today. Its survey of five and a half centuries of meticulous visual description by anatomists and artists will be a welcome addition to the libraries of artists, art students, doctors and anyone interested in the history of science. Starting with the groundbreaking drawings of Leonardo da Vinci – who was, uniquely, both a great artist and a great scientist – anatomical illustration developed into an important art form, one that contributed to both art and science.
