Elementi di anatomia fisiologica applicata alle belle arti figurative

Turin, 1837-39. Lithograph. National Library of Medicine.

Francesco Bertinatti
(fl. mid-1800s)

The stiffness of the figures, and self-conscious theatricality of the scene, combined with the high "finish" of the lithograph, lend it a dreamy quality that anticipates 20th-century surrealism.
