The Legacy of Andreas Vesalius - The Art of Anatomy in Education

An anatomical art exhibition marking the 500th anniversary of the birth of the great anatomist Andreas Vesalius.

The Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience is organising a unique art exhibition to mark the 500th anniversary of the birth of the great anatomist Andreas Vesalius and his legacy in art and anatomical education. Vesalius’ seminal publication of 1543, “De Humani Corporis Fabrica” represents one of the greatest historical shifts in medicine and the way it was taught. He created a book that carefully and systematically introduced anatomy of the human body in a way that was truthful to the findings of dissection on a scale that had never been accomplished before, laying the foundation for the modern medical textbooks in use today. His contribution to anatomical knowledge is matched by the visual quality of his illustrations, making it the perfect match for an illuminating anatomical art exhibition launching on the 21st October 2014 and running until the 1st December 2014 at the Jennings Gallery.
