Bibliotheca Anatomica
Daniel Le Clerc
1685

Lining the walls of the great hall are alcoves containing three-dimensional representations of anatomical figures from famous anatomy books. The background of this
picture summarizes the content of the book, and serves as a museum of anatomy, providing a historical context to the dissection taking place in the foreground. The figure on the far right is a characteristic post-Vesalian
“muscle man” holding his skin.
