Beauty of Anatomy

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Experimental, visceral, progressive - from the Venus of Willendorf, thought to be over 27,000 years old, through to Marc Quinn's modern self-portraits rendered in blood, the human body has always been one of art's central themes. But it is only with art and science combined that man has been able to fully understand and illustrate what lies beneath our skin. Tracing the rich history of this intimate relationship, this series explores how the advances of science transformed art, charting man's growing understanding of anatomy through the works that recorded and reflected it. Celebrating the great and the gruesome, the first-class and the foolish, this series offers a considered and illuminating insight into a fascinating subject.. Length: 100 minutes.
