di anatomia fisiologica applicata alle belle arti figurative
1837-39. Lithograph. National Library of Medicine.
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.
