The Vitruvian Man By Leonardo Da Vinci

Satisfactory Essays
I have been tasked with comparing and contrasting two works of art; one visual and one literary, while doing so I will then locate a shared theme in contemporary culture. My visual piece of art will be the sketch of The Vitruvian Man by Leonardo Da Vinci. Leonardo’s sketch of The Vitruvian Man was created around 1487 in his notebooks. For my literary work of art, I chose to work with Andreas Cesalius’ piece called De humani corporis fabrica libri septem (Latin for: On the fabric of the human body in seven books). Andreas Cesalius published his series of books about the human body around 1543. I will continue the comparing and contrasting Da Vinci & Cesalius’ work from the Italian Renaissance and the theme of Anatomy.
