The development of anatomy as a science that studies the structure of living things, extends from the earliest examinations of sacrificial victims of ancient times, to the sophisticated analyses of the body performed by modern scientists. Anatomy is one of the cornerstones of a doctor’s medical education, being a persistent portion of medicine teaching from at least the renaissance.

Gross anatomy (the study of anatomy at the macroscopic level) has also become a key part of visual arts. Basic concepts of how muscles and bones function and deform with movement is key to drawing, painting or animating a human figure. Many books are written as a guide to drawing the human body anatomically correct and Artistic Anatomy is nowadays a common subject of study in most Art academies. Leonardo da Vinci was one of the first artist who sought to improve his art through a better understanding of human anatomy. In the process he advanced both human anatomy and its representation in art. Since Leonardo’s time, many famous artists studied anatomy, attended dissections, and published drawings for money, from Michelangelo to Rembrandt.
