This seminar provides an overview of Renaissance anatomical studies, focusing on the norms, practices, and settings of the field, as well as the connections between anatomy and the fine arts during the period. We will focus on selected examples of collaboration between early modern artists and anatomists and on the production of the wonderfully illustrated printed anatomical texts that started to flourish around the beginning of the sixteenth century.
