Title: Anatomy: The Foundation of Medicine: From Aristotle to Early Twentieth-Century Wall Charts
Url: http://exhibits.hsl.virginia.edu/anatomical/
Publisher: University of Virginia
Description: Anatomical drawing and illustration has been an important tool of doctors and physiologists since the time of Galen. The University of Virginia's Claude Moore Health Science Library has created this breezy and informative tour through the history of anatomical study and drawing and placed it here for use by the general public. First-time visitors will want to take in the "Brief Essay on Anatomical Drawing" by Hal Sharp. Illustrated with anatomical drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and Vesalius, the essay offers a solid introduction to the work of these early masters of the form. Moving on, visitors will want to spend some significant time perusing the images from W & A.K. Johnston's Charts of Anatomy and Physiology by Dr. William Turner. Medical students would have encountered these images in the anatomy laboratory or classroom, and their visually elegant style and execution served as a model for those pedagogical devices that followed.
