DRAWING CHECKPOINT 2 Drawing Checkpoint Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawings illustrate his interest in anatomy, science, and religion. The drawings of the human anatomy show that he studied the human form intensely and captured every detail. This is evident in the drawing Principle Organs and Vascular and Urino- Genital Systems of a Woman. The detail in this drawing is accurately portrayed to the point that you would see in an actually medical reference. Da Vinci’s interest in science brought him to sketch species of animals, studies of nature, and various inventions. Da Vinci was an inventor as well as an artist. The sketches of the flying machine, the boat, and different devices can be attributed to his imagination and artistic ability. The functions of Da Vinci’s drawings were to sketch out his ideas before he would turn them into great works of art. Michelangelo, too, admired and studied the world around him.

Unformatted text preview: He was an architect but considered himself a sculptor. (British Museum) He would sketch his works in chalk before turning them into sculptures or architecture. He captured every detail of the heroic and idealized male form. (British Museum) Like Da Vinci, Michelangelo made the human form seem graceful and turned them into works of art with the way they were posed. In the example of the tomb for the Medici, the form that is Day is in a position that in real life would be extraordinarily uncomfortable but Michelangelo makes the sculpture look graceful. The drawing of the eyes in the example on the British Museum shows an accurate amount of detail. It was this type of detail that Michelangelo desired his pupils to understand and be able to mimic in their own art. DRAWING CHECKPOINT 3 Reference The British Museum. (na). Michelangelo.
