Anatomical Study of Flayed Male
Anatomical Study (Houdon's studio, late 18th century)
In Rome, the young Houdon was given the opportunity to study human anatomy extensively thanks to a surgeon. In 1767, he modeled the famous L'ecorche, an anatomical study of a flayed male which allowed the muscles to be observed in detail. Soon afterward, every self-respecting academy in Europe had a copy of the sculpture which was freely reproduced in countless versions.
