Andreas Vesalius: De humani corporis fabrica (53.682) | Heilbrunn. 1555. Timeline of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum of Art

I won't lie, The hard science of human anatomy has been difficult to apply to my soft, right-brained mind for the arts, but my fascination with the artists who created this subject by their beautiful expressions of reality has pulled me through. This image was by one of the world's first anatomists to create a textbook, Andreas Vesalius. He is amazing.
