Join Katie Birkwood our rare books librarian and curator of our exhibition ‘Under the skin: anatomy, art and identity’ for our first digital RCP Museum late.
Katie will take you on a virtual tour through the themes and stories told in our current exhibition about the artistry and innovation of anatomical illustration from the medieval world to the present day. Discover the historical books, drawings, oral histories and the contemporary artworks chosen to offer personal and emotional reflections on medical representations of the human body.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A.
