…by Joanna Ebenstein. For centuries, humankind has sought to know itself through an understanding of the body. This fascination left in its wake a rich body of artworks that demonstrate not only the facts of the human body, but also the ways in which our ideas about the body and its proper representation have changed over time. Anatomica brings together some of the most striking, fascinating and bizarre anatomical artworks from the 14th through to the 20th century.
