Artists under the skin: exhibition launch event and lecture

Join the Royal College of Physicians museum for the opening of its new exhibition ‘Under the skin: illustrating the human body’

Join the Royal College of Physicians museum for the opening of its exhibition ‘Under the skin: illustrating the human body’, an exploration of the art and science of anatomical illustration from the medieval world to the present day.
Throughout history physicians, printers, surgeons and artists have developed tools and techniques to depict human anatomy and communicate what is hidden inside the human form. The results are masterpieces of artistry and technology.
New displays peel back the surface of human existence to reveal what lies under the skin. Rarely seen artworks, books and objects from the Royal College of Physicians outstanding collections go on public display in this unique show.
This special opening event also includes a lecture by Annette Wickham, curator of works on paper at the Royal Academy of Arts, examining how artists have engaged with human anatomy and devised techniques for representing the body in two dimensional images.
From 6pm: Reception and exhibition viewing
7-8pm: Speeches and lecture, Dorchester Library
8-8.30pm: Exhibition viewing and cash bar
