Anatomia universale...

Florence, 1833. Overprinted and hand colored copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine

Paolo Mascagni

Antonio Serantoni

Mascagni’s great anatomical atlas was published only after his death. A lithographic 1826 edition claims Corsican anatomist Francesco Antommarchi (Napoleon’s personal physician, and Mascagni’s sometime collaborator) as sole author. But scholars recognized the searingly bright colors and stylized grotesquerie of the figures as the distinctive work of Mascagni.
