"It is a miracle that any one man should have observed, read, and written down so much in a single lifetime."--Kenneth Clark Painter, sculptor, musician, scientist, architect, engineer, inventor . . . perhaps no other figure so fully embodies the Western Ideal of "Renaissance man" as Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo was not content, however, to master an artistic technique or record the mechanics of a device; he was driven by an insatiable curiosity to understand why. His writings, interests, and musings are uniformly characterized by an incisive, probing, questioning mind. It was with this piercing intellectual scrutiny and detailed scientific thoroughness that Leonardo undertook the study of the human body. This exceptional volume reproduces more than 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical drawings on 215 clearly printed black-and-white plates. The drawings have been arranged in chronological sequence to display Leonardo's development and growth as an anatomist. Leonardo's text, which accompanies the drawings--sometimes explanatory, sometimes autobiographical and anecdotal--has been translated into English by the distinguished medical professors Drs. O'Malley and Saunders. In their fascinating biographical introduction, the authors evaluate Leonardo's position in the historical development of anatomy and anatomical illustration. Each plate is accompanied by explanatory notes and an evaluation of the individual plate and an indication of its relationship to the work as a whole. While notable for their extraordinary beauty and precision, Leonardo's anatomical drawings were also far in advance of all contemporary work and scientifically the equal of anything that appeared well into the seventeenth century. Unlike most of his predecessors and contemporaries, Leonardo took nothing on trust and had faith only in his own observations and experiments. In anatomy, as in his other investigations, Leonardo's great distinction is the truly scientific nature of his methods. Herein then are over 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical illustrations organized into eight major areas of study: Osteological System, Myological System, Comparative Anatomy, Nervous System, Respiratory System, Alimentary System, Genito-Urinary System, and Embryology. Artists, illustrators, physicians, students, teachers, scientists, and appreciators of Leonardo's extraordinary genius will find in these 1,200 drawings the perfect union of art and science. Carefully detailed and accurate in their data, beautiful and vibrant in their technique, they remain today--nearly five centuries later--the finest anatomical drawings ever made. Dover (1983) unabridged and unaltered republication of "Leonardo da Vinci on the Human Body: The Anatomical, Physiological, and Embryological Drawings of Leonardo da Vinci, " originally published by Henry Schuman, New York, 1952.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Kunst - Uebergreifende Betrachtungen, Note: 1,3, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin, Veranstaltung: Italienische Malerei des 15. Jahrhunderts, 6 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Arbeit uber Leonardo da Vinci, dem italienischen Kunstler, Erfinder und Wissenschaftler des 15. Jahrhunderts, beschaftigt sich mit der Fragestellung War Leonardo ein Hofkunstler'." Sie basiert auf Martin Warnkes Buch Hofkunstler" und seiner These, dass sich das Bewusstsein von der unverwechselbaren Eigenheit des kunstlerischen Genies und von der hoheren Bestimmung der Kunste, wie sie bis heute lebendig sind, als erstes an den Renaissancehofen gezeigt habe. Sein Buch stellt eine Gegenthese zu folgender von ihm illustrierter historischer Beurteilung hofischer Kunstorganisation dar: Die Redner der Franzosischen Revolution werteten alle Errungenschaften des modernen Kunstlers als die der stadtischen burgerlichen Kultur und urteilten uber funf Jahrhunderte hofischer Kunstorganisation als Zeit despotischer Unterdruckung, in welcher sich die Kunst an den Herrscher prostituiert hatte. Die Bemuhungen des Fursten um den Kunstler stellen in ihren Augen nur eine Manipulation des kunstlerischen Talents und eine Behinderung des Freiheitsstrebens dar. Warnke ruckt dieses einseitige Bild zurecht, indem er zahlreiche geschichtliche Belege dafur anfuhrt, dass die Tatigkeit des Kunstlers an den Hofen des Quattrocento und spater, zum ersten Mal als eine aussergewohnliche, geistige und forderungswurdige definiert wurde. Die Kunstlerpersonlichkeit entruckte durch zahlreiche neue Privilegien und Ruhmesbekundungen mit der Zeit in eine fast furstliche Sphare. Dies geschah zu einer Zeit, in der Kunstler in den Stadten, so auch in Florenz, der Stadt in der Leonardo da Vinci einen Grossteil seines Lebens verbrachte, als einfache Handwerker galten und in Zunften organisiert waren. Dem italienischen Kunstler des 15. Jahrhunderts fehlte das Bewu"

"Im Jahre 1881 sah sich die kunsthistorische Fachwelt zum ersten Male mit der These konfrontiert, dass Leonardo da Vinci im Orient gewesen sei. Die sich als Reaktion darauf entwickelnde Debatte ist das Kernthema dieses Bandes, der ihre Geschichte nachzeichnet als Kulturgeschichte einer Idee, die - über die Fachwelt hinaus - auch auf Literatur und Populärkultur eingewirkt hat. Basierend auf der neuesten Forschung bietet der Band zudem den ersten Gesamtüberblick über die vielfältigen Beziehungen des historischen Leonardo zur orientalischen Welt, dargeboten in einem umfassend angelegten Anhang, in dem sich ein kulturelles Gesamtpanorama ost-westlicher Beziehungen entfaltet"--Publisher's description from back cover.

Numerous great works have been created within the realm of Christian art, but none has received as much acclaim as Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. Art lovers venerate it for its composition and noble aesthetics, while for Christians it epitomises the intimate relationship between Christ and his disciples. In recent years it has also become the focus of intrigue, controversy and speculation, following the publication of some bestselling fictional narratives and questionable historical studies. Given the recent restoration that has exposed remnants of the original paint-work and removed falsifications created by over-painting, we are now able to contemplate Da Vinci's masterpiece in its original form for the first time since its creation over 500 years ago. In this lavishly-illustrated, full-colour book - which reproduces many details of the restored work - Michael Ladwein turns his attention to newly-revealed aspects that allow for fresh interpretations."

The life and work of the great Italian Renaissance artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) have proved endlessly fascinating for generations. In Leonardo da Vinci, Sherwin Nuland completes his twenty-year quest to understand an unlettered man who was a painter, architect, engineer, philosopher, mathematician, and scientist. What was it that propelled Leonardo’s insatiable curiosity? Nuland finds clues in his subject’s art, relationships, and scientific studies—as well as in a vast quantity of notes that became widely known in the twentieth century. Scholarly and passionate, Nuland’s Leonardo da Vinci takes us deep into the first truly modern, empirical mind, one that was centuries ahead of its time.
