LEONARDO DA VINCI
UNDER THE SKIN
Category: Medieval and renaissance art
From their unique perspectives as artist and scientist, S. and M. Farthing analyse Leonardo's drawings - which are concerned chiefly with the skeletal, cardiovascular, muscular and nervous systems - and discuss the impact they had on both art and medical understanding. S. Farthing has created a series of drawings in response to Leonardo, which are reproduced with commentary by Michael, who also provides a useful glossary of medical terminology.
