Tabulae anatomicae...

Rome, 1741. Copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine.

Pietro Berrettini da Cortona

A skeleton dances a lively step; in the background an arrangement of bones float in the air. Berrettini’s exuberant flourishes take their cue from the theatricalism of baroque drama and court entertainments.
