Leonardo Da Vinci Vitruvian Man, 1492

Vitruvian Man, 1492 by Leonardo Da Vinci art print


We have already seen how Leonardo's interest in antiquity influenced some of his earlier works: the Uffizi "Adoration of the Magi", for eaxmple, draws on the accented three-dimensionality of Roman bas reliefs and sarcophagi, whose multiple figures are modeled with same use of strong chiaroscuro; "St. Jerome" is a paradigmatic representation of Vitruvian principles of architecture. In these works, Leonardo's humanistic interest in the antique begins to supersede the style he had absorbed in Verrochio's shop during his formative years. There, a language of elegance and ornamentation had prevailed over classical fullness of form.
