Human Anatomy: Depicting The Body From The Renaissance To Today Reviews

    A brilliant look into the history of anatomical art. It's easy to ready and easy to get into. You don't need to be an art historian, an anatomist, a surgeon or an artist to understand each of the easily digestible chapters. I never realized how steeped in politics, religion and philosophy medical drawings could be. It's a fantastic insight into how artists and medical practitioners acquired their vast knowledge and it's a great way to marvel at skill of centuries of devoted artists and craftsmen. Also, the human body is super cool and it's just so amazing to learn how it's all put together.

    An excellent way to be introduced to the major changes and advancements in anatomical drawing from Vesalius onwards. It's absolutely packed with pictures and has plenty of information for the reader too. The only fault was that some of the biographies of individuals mirrored the main text a bit too much, but generally they did add to main text as well, so it was certainly forgivable. All in all, a very good book.

    Antik çağlardan, Vesalius'a, Da Vinci'ye, Metter'e ve günümüz bilgisayar çağına kadar anatomik çizimlerin, medikal illüstrasyonunun tarihçesini anlatan güzel bir akademik kaynak kitap. Lisans tezimi yazarken sıklıkla kullanmıştım. Ayrıca Robinson Crusoe 389'dan aldığım ilk kitaptı; anısı da var :(

    It was really interesting to see how medical illustrations have changed over history. How there was a connection between science, art and religion. How the early illustration had the dead morning their death or cadavers that help by peeling their own skin - a holy pentace for humanity.

    Not for the squeamish. Brilliant illustrated history of how surgeons and artists have tried to depict anatomy since the renaissance. Fascinating stuff, and lots of pictures.
