Jacques Fabien Gautier d’Agoty’s.
Jacques Fabien Gautier d’Agoty, born in Marseille to Paris in 1716 and died in 1785, is a painter and engraver of French anatomy. His colored mezzotints have a painterly quality. This pregnant woman calmly looks back at the viewer, a characteristic pose of 18th-century French portraiture.

Anatomia del corpo humano…
Rome, 1559. Copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine.
Juan Valverde de Amusco(ca. 1525 - ca. 1588)[anatomist]
A flayed cadaver holds his skin in one hand and a dissecting knife in the other. The skin’s distorted face has the appearance of a ghost or a cloud, suggesting that spirit has been separated from, or peeled off of, the fleshy inner man.

Pietro Berrettini da Cortona(1596-1669). Tabulae anatomicae… Rome, 1741. Copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine.
Around 1618 Berrettini made a series of extraordinary drawings that were later forgotten and only printed in 1741. The figures are emphatic anatomical entertainers who solicit attention with aggressive body language.
