A new installation, Anatomy, is now on view at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, March 10 - May 3, 2015

Art and anatomy is the subject of the current chapter of Art, Science, and Technology at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, a series of small installations anticipating the opening of Vassar’s new Science Center in Spring 2016. On view is a selection of twelve works from Vassar’s collections that display artists’ ongoing fascination with the human body. Among the earliest works are woodcuts depicting anthropomorphic skeletons from Andreas Vesalius’s On the Structure of the Human Body (first published in 1543). Other highlights include anatomical studies by seventeenth-century masters Rembrandt and Stefano della Bella; a sculpture by Thomas Eakins and etching by John Sloan, both examples of Philadelphia’s role as a vibrant intersection for art and medicine; and compelling photographs of surrealist human forms in twentieth-century photography by Joseph Breitenbach and Weegee. In the Landing Gallery.
