These fifty sheets of drawings of the human body by Leonardo, made between about 1485 and 1510-15, are based on the artist's own anatomical dissections and show his evolving understanding of physiology. The drawings demonstrate, as well, Leonardo's progress from technical mastery of his subject to consummate draftsmanship.
