Anatomical Engraving, Icones Anatomicae

This exquisitely rendered early 19th-century anatomical engraving once formed part of the Icones Anatomicae - a set of four volumes depicting various parts of the body.

It was created by Leopoldo Marco Antonio Caldani (1725-1813) and his nephew, Floriano Caldani (1772-1836), a collaboration between two exceptional minds.

When published, Icones Anatomicae was widely lauded as the finest representation of the anatomy to date and today it still garners a great deal of interest from the scientific community.

Framed and glazed.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
