LEONARDO DA VINCI - Royal Collection

Place:Royal Library,Windsor

.....................

Facsimile (Giunti, Florence 1980-85); ca. 1478-1518; 48x35 cm

This collection was gathered by the sculptor Pompeo Leoni at the end of the sixteenth century, who included mostly Leonardo's figurative studies. It is possible to distinguish different dominant themes. The clearest is that of anatomical drawings. There is also a conspicuous group of landscape drawings, a series of studies of horses (including studies for equestrian monuments), numerous drawings of figures and caricatures, as well as a group of geographical maps.

K/P 142r: Notes and sketches on the human skeleton.

K/P 144v: Studies on muscles and the articulation of the shoulder.
