Pietro da Cortona (born Pietro Berrettini) was an Italian painter and architect who became a key figure in the development of Roman Baroque architecture. Around 1618, when he was not twenty years old, he drew a series of highly studied anatomical figures that were not published until more than 70 years after his death. Gaetano Petrioli, a professor of medicine and surgeon to King Victor Amadeus II of Sardinia, added seven figures copied from Vesalius, Vesling, Casserio and others, as well as his own commentary, and published these in volume titled Tabluae anatomicae (1741). Observing the “The dramatic and elegant poses of the dissected figures,” Princeton University biographer Nicola Shilliam describes it as “one of the most artistic anatomical atlases ever produced.”
