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.

How time does fly

My apologies, friends, for not completing my series on health issues through time, but with a show about to open and wedding work consuming my free time I've been more than a little busy. I'll finish those shortly when I've had more to time to do the research. In the meantime I leave you with a favorite quote..."Post Tenebrus Lux (After the darkness, light)"- Motto of the city of Geneva

Happy holidays to all!
