Amsterdam, 1690. Copperplate engraving with etching. National Library of Medicine.

Govard Bidloo

Gérard de Lairesse

Bidloo’s realistic anatomy has affinities to trompe l’oeil and still-life, two popular genres of 17th-century Netherlandish painting that often featured bones and other symbols of death.
