"Anatomical Theatre" Website Launch!
Finally, after many months, I am launching a somewhat finalized draft of the Anatomical Theatre website. Herein you will find an a expanded version of the physical exhibition, which features 64 photographs (the website features nearly 100!) of medical museum artifacts held in great collections in Europe and the United States. The artifacts range from preserved human remains to models made from ivory, wax, and papier mâché, with provenances spanning from the 16th to the 20th centuries. As much information as possible is coupled with each image. Visit the website to learn more about this project, find information about featured museums, and view the photographs.
Anatomical Theatre: Depictions of the Body, Disease, and Death in Medical Museums of the Western World is a travelling exhibition; next location to be announced.
Note: I attempted to include as much factual data as possible about the artifacts photographed. Often, I was the only one checking facts. if anyone comes across any mistakes please drop me a line and let me know.
All images above from the Anatomical Theatre website; visit the website to find out more information about each piece.
