Exhibition on Anatomical Art

There is an exhibit currently on display at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC called "The Body Inside and Out: Anatomical Literature and Art Theory Selections from the National Gallery of Art Library". In light of our recent focus on health and medicine throughout the ages it is an exhibit I look forward very much to seeing soon. The online catalogue describes t iby saying, "This exhibition, featuring outstanding examples of anatomy-related material from the collection of rare books in the National Gallery of Art Library, offers a glimpse into the ways anatomical studies were made available to and used by artists from the 16th to the early 19th century." Running through January 23, 2011 there's not much time left to catch it.
