Eerie Anatomy: Vesalius’ De humani corporis fabrica
Andreas Vesalius Flemish. When Andreas Vesalius — first published his radical De humani corporis fabrica On the Structure of the Human Body , the ancient texts of Aristotle and Galen were still judged authoritative in the medical schools of Europe. By performing his own dissections, Vesalius discovered errors in the ancient authors' teachings. The De humani corporis fabrica, which drew attention to these flaws, initially threatened the academic medical establishment but ultimately won Vesalius admiration and a post as court physician to Charles V, to whom he dedicated the volume. Carefully integrated into Vesalius' text are over woodcuts executed by a skilled group of artists that may have included Jan Steven van Calcar — , who trained in the workshop of Titian. No text on anatomy before the Fabrica had ever been illustrated so completely or so well, and although the plates are didactic in intent, they are also rich in aesthetic merit.
