Product story

George Stubbs ARA (1724 - 1806)
Human Skeleton: lateral view c, 1804-06
RA Collection
Etching on plate, 27.8 x 24.3 cm

This haunting image of the human form was drawn and etched by George Stubbs for his last great venture in the field of anatomy, a hugely ambitious, incomplete treatise entitled A Comparative Anatomical Exposition of the Human Body with that of a Tiger and Common Fowl, London, [1804-06]. Marking the culmination of his lifelong study of the subject, Stubbs's investigation of the homology of the bone structure of vertebrates was at the forefront of current scientific thought. However in his desire to prove his theories he drew the anatomical figure of a man that is so far from the classical norm as to evoke the pathos of ugliness.
