"Some of the artists that attempted to render Vitruvius’ description in graphic manner include: Cesare Caesariano (1521), Albrecht Dürer (1528), Pietro di Giacomo Cataneo (1554), Heinrich Lautensack (1618), William Blake (1795), and Susan Dorothea White, whose version Sex Change for Vitruvian Man (2005) raised questions regarding the gender specific nature of existing studies on human proportion and bodily geometry in Western art."
