Depiction of Human Dissection, 1363
Doing an at-work stock art search today (on a totally unrelated topic) I came across the wonderful image above. Caption reads: "French Manuscript Illumination of a Public Dissection by the Faculty of Montpellier From Guy de Chauliac's Chirurgia Magna, 1363." Chauliac was, apparently, a renowned surgeon of the Middle Ages, with a patient roster inluding a string of Popes.
