The Origins of Anatomical Art and Anatomy Illustrations

Anatomy, the word originally from the Greek language meaning anatomia, and temnein, to cut up, cut open. Is a branch of biology and medicine that is the consideration of the structure of all living things. The science that deals with the form and structure of organic bodies; anatomical structure or organization. A medical artist such as Joanna is trained to interpret and illustrate such matter. The anatomy illustrations take on a realism style as their aim is to correctly and accurately record the information through an art form, revealing a true representation of the subject.

Gray's Anatomy is probably the most famous medical text book in the world because of its anatomical illustrations. The book was an almost instant success when it was published in 1858 and since then has been in print continously. While many medical illustrators have now contributed to the outstanding collection of anatomy illustrations that the book has contained over the more than 150 years it has been around, the original medical illustrator perhaps hasn't received the credit he deserved. Many people assume that Gray's Anatomy was the work of a single man but while Henry Gray's vision and knowledge were vital, the book stood out from all of its peers because of the anatomy illustrations and these were the work of Henry Vandyke Carter (Carter). Both men had been students at St George's Hospital in London before becoming teachers there.
