Caption: Harvey dissecting blood circulation. Historical artwork of the English doctor William Harvey (1578-1657) dissecting a dog to demonstrate the anatomy of the circulation of the blood. The scene depicted here dates from 1619, three years after Harvey announced his discovery and explanation of valves in veins. By 1928, he had published his main work, which argued that blood was pumped around the body by the heart. Harvey was the first to correctly describe the anatomy and function of the heart and blood vessels. Artwork from around 1885, from the Imagerie d'Epinal, France.
