J. Dumoulin after Jean Blanchin : “Anatomy of the Principal Parts of the Human Body” (1679)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

This print shows four large human figures, including a skeleton, a muscle-man derived from Vesalius, and male and female figures (the latter cropped mid-thigh). The main figures are surrounded by 15 smaller details of organs, many of which (arm, liver, ear, etc.) are derived from Remmelin’s Catoptrum microcosmicum (Mirror of the microcosm, translated into English under the title of Survey of the microcosme, 1619). The left-most (female) figure is notable for its unusual representation of the gyri of the brain, and a very eccentric representation of the meninges (folded back from the brain like pages in a sample-book).
