Bartolomeo Eustachi (-1574)

On display this week as part of our anatomical illustration spotlight exhibition Art of the Unseen: Anatomical Illustration in the Special Collections, we look at Explicatio tabularum anatomicarum Bartholomaei Eustachii (Leidae Batavorum : Apud Joannen Arnoldum Langerak et Joannem & Hermannum Verbeek, 1761), the work of a contemporary of Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564). The drawings produced by this renowned Italian dissector and teacher are considered by some to be more accurate than those of Vesalius, though his body of work was not published until some 150 years after his death.

The spotlight exhibition can also be viewed in its entirety on the digital display wall in the Hardiman Foyer during the month of February.
