About this picture

Description

A study of Lodovico Cigoli's écorché model, known as La bella notomia, or Lo scorticato, a fuller view of which is seen in another drawing in the same group, Wellcome Library catalogue no. 38055i. It is a detail of the same view seen in Wellcome Library catalogue nos 37939i and 38014i. The original wax model was produced by Cigoli around 1600 in Florence, with casts made from it soon after in bronze and plaster. The figure met with great popularity in its own time and casts have continued to be produced subsequently
