Caption: 'The Flayed Angel' illustration from Gautier d'Agoty's Suite de l'Essai d'anatomie en tableaux imprimes (Paris: Gautier, 1745), which is a supplement to his Essai d'anatomie en tableaux imprimes, published in Paris the same year. The image is one of Gautier's most famous. Gautier d'Agoty associated himself with surgeon Jacques-Francois-Marie Duverney (1661-1748) and together the two produced a number of large, colorful anatomical atlases, which were noted more for their style and sometimes their shocking appearance than their usefulness to physicians. The monumental Anatomie generale des visceres is thought to have been printed in Paris in 1752.
