The Heart of Leonardo

In this book that unites modern science and Renaissance art, Leonardo da Vinci's exquisite drawings of the human heart are revealed to be as technically accurate as they are artistically brilliant. Leonardo's studies of the heart are the finest of his anatomical drawings. Only recently has medical science confirmed the depth of Leonardo's knowledge about how the heart works. Francis C. Wells, a leading cardiologist, shares his passion for the Renaissance master in this book that explores how Leonardo's achievements foreshadowed modern surgical procedures. Reproductions of the drawings are accompanied by a new translation of the artist's notes and Wells' personal reflections on the value of drawing as vital to the scientific process. The result is a novel examination of Leonardo's anatomical drawings of the heart as a product of both science and art.
