The Beauty of Anatomy

In the 17th century in Holland anatomy became the cutting edge of medical science, inspiring the great artists of the age, like Rembrandt, to produce the most beautiful anatomical paintings yet created. Dr Adam Rutherford travels to the Hague and Amsterdam to find out what it was that drew Rembrandt to anatomy and why dissecting bodies was thought a suitable subject for high art. Dr Adam Rutherford investigates the story of the two brilliant but controversial Hunter brothers, who transformed both medicine and art in 18th century Britain. Their belief that their students could only learn anatomy by carrying out dissections created an unprecedented demand for dead bodies and a market for the growing trade of body-snatching from graveyards. The world's most famous study of the human body is Gray's Anatomy. Dr Adam Rutherford tells the story of how, in just three years, Doctor Henry Gray and Doctor Henry Carter put it together based on dissections they personally performed.
