The above illustration is by Leonardo Da Vinci, and it is called Study of a Womb, circa 1489. Da Vinci lived in Florence from 1452-1519 (Gombrich, 1989, p. 220). Da Vinci was interesting to me because of he is a clearly a “Renaissance Man” – in addition to painting what is, perhaps, the most famous painting ever, the Mona Lisa, as well as what is, perhaps, the second most famous painting ever, The Last Supper, Da Vinci was also a genius in science and was an inventor.
