Artistic anatomy is a science that studies the body structure, position, relationship and movement law of human or animal from the perspective of plastic arts. Also known as artistic anatomy. One of the basic theoretical disciplines of art.
Ancient Greek artists have shown exquisite anatomical knowledge in their sculpture works: in order to accurately show the structure and dynamics of the human body, painters and sculptors in the Renaissance even dissected corpses themselves. Italian painters Da Vinci and Michelangelo have done this work.
Of course, artistic anatomy is different from medicine or other anatomy. It mainly studies the surface characteristics of the body. And do not care about the physiological functions of organs, tissues, systems, etc. Generally speaking, artistic anatomy mainly involves proportion, structure and dynamics.
