ANATOMIC - ARTIST - ADVENTURER
WE can pinpoint the emergence of Leonardo da Vinci’s interest in
human anatomy with some accuracy. It was at the end of the 1480s,
when he was working for Ludovico Maria Sforza, the swarthy ruler
of Milan. One day Leonardo sat down and inscribed the top of a
sheet of paper using his idiosyncratic right-to-left mirror writing
with the words, “On the 2nd day of April 1489”, adding later ...
“Book entitled On the Human Figure” - so the ONLY way we can
FIGURE out the answer to THE particular question ...
"What letter do we add to S T E M ?" -
is to defer to the master himself ... and on his behalf and in his
name, I would add A to make it S T E A M
BUT above ALL it was Leonardo's ART of the application of MATHS
to his work as an Artist, Sculptor, Engineer et al, which absolutely
made him the INTEGRAL ARTIST par excellence, which we now
know him to have been, half a millennium later.
