Vitruvian man, Leonardo da Vinci



DA VINCI already used this

technique in the Renaissance. After the rigidity in the Middle Ages, the people da Vinci drew became beings of flesh and blood due to the many fine lines he added. Around 1490 , da Vinci developed the sketch of the VITRUVIAN MAN , which is still known today. It shows a man with outstretched arms and legs in two superimposed positions. The study became the symbol of a new world view that focussed on humans and their bodies.
