Cattani Foot

Perhaps I should have titled them “toes.” I don’t have access to a real skeleton so I borrowed from a picture of a 1780 engraving by Antonio Cattani that a found in Sara Simblet’s Anatomy for the Artist. I am, by the way, absolutely in love with the book. The John Davis’ photography of male and female models is superb. I hoping to use the book to learn how to draw the body… (and continuing to gush) it’s a wonderful reference!

    It’s such a wonderful book (obviously still gushing.) I have her other book as well – it may be as good, I just haven’t spent any time with it.

    I like the toes, the toenails especially, hard and spooky. Have you seen the Taschen published book called Anatomica? I think you’d like it, I do.

    I haven’t seen Anatomica but one of the wax models from Museo La Specola is in Simblet’s book. Fascinating. I should put Anatomica on my wishlist or better yet a trip to Florence on my wishlist!
