Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564) was Profesor of anatomy and medicine at the University of Padua in Italy, later becoming court physician to the emperor Charles V and his son Philip II of Spain. His greatest work was 'De humani corporis fabrica' ('On the structure of the Human Body', 1543), which contains detailed descriptions and magnificent illustrations by Steven van Calcar, that set a new level of clarity and accuracy in the study of anatomy.
