How Hasselblad Is Allowing Us to See the Work of Leonardo Da Vinci like Never Before

Hasselblad is working with imaging specialists from the University of Bologna and art historians from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan to capture incredibly detailed and accurate images of a copy by Andrea Appiani of the famous Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man.

Paola Salvi, Professor of Semiology of the Body at the Department of Visual Arts of the Brera Academy, explains that “Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man began to become famous in the early nineteenth century when many artists copied it. The drawing by Appiani is the most beautiful and faithful to the original. Shooting it with a Hasselblad H6D-400c MS to create a 3D model is very useful for studying the paper and the technique, and for creating navigable overlays with the image of the original drawing by Leonardo.”
