39 views

ABSTRACT

The anatomist, since the beginning of human dissections, had always performed the most difficult task in medicine, the study of the structure of the human body. Religious and scientific barriers throughout the centuries made anatomists become isolated by both the scientific and civilian community. Anatomist rapt in cadavers and skeletal remains was usually depicted as an unsociable  being, performing his task in secluded places.

Keywords: Joseph Wright, anatomy and art, anatomist, human dissections.
