Andreas Vesalius, "De humani corporis fabrica," title page.

Caption accompanying the print reads: "In this splendid woodcut the great Belgian anatomist lectures as he dissects. The size and rapt attention of his audience are not exaggerated. Vesalius reformed the study of human anatomy by replacing dogmatic belief in the inaccurate teachings of the past with a magnificent account of his own careful observations."

Andreas Vesalius, "De humani corporis fabrica," Plate 24.

Caption accompanying the print reads: "This view shows the muscles as they appear after removal of skin and fascia. Such a figure, called an ecorche, was of interest to sculptors and artists as well as to medical students and doctors. An accompanying legend named the muscles identified by letters."

Andreas Vesalius, "De humani corporis fabrica," Plate 25.

Caption accompanying the print reads: "Like the other 'muscle men,' this figure seems alive, emphasizing the interrelation of the structure and function. When these and successive pictures are placed side by side in order, the background is seen to be continuous. It is an actual region near Padua."
