Getting Here

A unique opportunity to see a selection of spectacular medical works dating from the Renaissance to the 20th century up close.

Some highlights of the specimens that will be on display include:

-First and second editions of Andreas Vesalius’ landmark work "De humani corporis fabrica," which is credited as being the foundation of modern anatomy

-Govard Bidloo’s "Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams," known for the harsh sense of realism it brought to illustrating the process of dissection

-Siegfried Albinus’ massive "Tabluae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani," with its illustrations of skeletons and skinned musclemen posing against elaborate backgrounds

This event is free and open to the public – all are welcome to attend.
