This reproduction is a new, individually printed and proofed, superior quality, giclee* process, fine art print.

It is printed on 100% cotton rag acid-free, heavyweight fine art paper with a luxurious textured watercolor paper finish and archival pigment inks to ensure permanence.

Reproduced at Leonardo's actual dimensions of 12 x 9 inches, it is printed on larger 16 x 13 inch paper to allow ample room for matting and framing.

The Fetus and the Linings of the Uterus, c.1512
This drawing, perhaps the single most famous of his entire Notebook Drawings, The Fetus and the Linings of the Uterus, is so expertly drawn that it can still be used as an example in medical textbooks today. Leonardo’s anatomy drawings became the foundation of modern anatomical illustration.

Leonardo's Anatomy Drawings
Recognized as the greatest draughtsman of the age, he combined an artist’s drawing skills to record the external details of the human form and the anatomist’s concern with the internal systems of the body. In the course of twenty years of study from c.1489 to the end of his life in 1519 Leonardo dissected at least thirty corpses which were the basis of his anatomical studies and drawings.

In 1508 Leonardo made a note to himself to have his ‘libro di notomia’ – book of anatomy, bound into a single volume. Leonardo dissected cadavers of woman who died in childbirth. This present sheet with the viscera of the fetus is evidence that Leonardo also dissected a miscarried embryo.

The Drawings of Leonardo da Vinci
Artist, inventor and quintessential Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was the most relentlessly curious man in history. During his lifetime he produced over 20,000 pages of notes and drawings of which some 4000 pages survive today. Now collectively known as The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, this extensive body of notes, sketches and drawings explored subjects as diverse as anatomy, architecture, painting, military science, music and zoology among dozens of others.

While Leonardo conceived his drawings as scientific studies and sketches for his paintings, his draftsmanship is breathtaking and his drawings stand as works of art in their own right.

**the giclee process produces a high quality, fine art reproduction from a high-resolution digital file of an image. The file is then printed with a high-resolution photo generation printer on a fine art paper. Most artists and working photographers today use the giclee process to produce reproductions of their original artwork and photographs.

As with any original art or fine art reproduction, it is recommended that prints are framed and displayed under glass to prevent color fade or shift over the years.
