Anatomy of an Artist

Leonardo da Vinci has long been recognised as one of the great artists of the Reinaissance, and his work was informed by his detailed studies of human anatomy.

He had hoped to publish a treatise on anatomy, but after his death in 1519, his drawings remained unnoticed among his private papers and were lost to the world for almost 400 years.

A selection of these drawings, which are now part of the Royal Collection, are currently on display in an exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, from 4 May until 7 October. Image
