From the 1st to the 9th March 2018, the 12 anatomical resemblances of the educational project "About Moretto and Anatomy" will be exhibited at the atrium of the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Brescia.
The project, realized by the students of the second year of the schools of Painting and Sculpture (AA 2015-16), during the course of Artistic Anatomy of the Professor and Artist Adriano Rossoni, is an anatomical restitution - in 1:1 scale - of all the figures of the Altarpiece of the Assumption of Moretto located in the old Cathedral (La Rotonda) of Brescia.
The artistic modality used was that of drawing from life, proceeding in the anatomical study from the outside towards the inside. The altarpiece was in fact reconstructed in the form of a tableau vivant, thanks to the photographic collaboration in the preparatory phase of Prof. Stefano Bianchi, who took care of immortalizing a model and a model in the garments and poses of the individual characters, freeing them from the drapery of the painting but keeping the painter's point of view and the angle of light of the reference image.
The students then took care of the individual characters and reconstructed the postures of the bone composition, using both a skeleton supplied with the course and a particular anatomical software. These instruments allowed to reconstruct the movement of the muscles, generating a balance between the somatic, osteological and myological components.
The exhibition, with free access during the opening hours of the horror, shows the final result of this great work, which lasted a few months and realized with the didactic objective of deepening the drawing technique with the conté carré, but above all to know the composition and the movement of the human body, by studying how the hidden components generate its somatic appearance.
The inauguration of the exhibition will take place on March 1st at 11:00.
