The work

Anatomical studies of a male shoulder 1509-10
Pen and ink on paper, 292 x 198 mm
Royal Library, Windsor

Leonardo da Vinci, a master of the Renaissance era, created an intricate study of the superficial anatomy of the shoulder and neck, focusing particularly on the muscles in these areas. This work, dating back to around 1510-11, is a testament to da Vinci's deep interest in human anatomy and his skill in depicting it. The piece, measuring 29.2 x 19.8 cm, is a part of the Royal Collection and has a rich history. It was initially bequeathed to Francesco Melzi, later acquired by Pompeo Leoni around 1582-90, and eventually became part of the Royal Collection by 1690.

This drawing is not just an artistic endeavor but also a scientific exploration, showcasing da Vinci's meticulous study of human anatomy. It has been featured in the exhibition "Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Man" at The Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse. This exhibition used modern medical technology to delve into Leonardo's anatomical research, bridging the gap between Renaissance art and contemporary medical science.
