ONLINE EVENT: ARTIST OF DEATH FREDERIK RUYSCH: A LIVE, ONLINE SYMPOSIUM AND BOOK LAUNCH FOR FREDERIK RUYSCH AND HIS THESAURUS ANATOMICUS: A MORBID GUIDE

So-called “Artist of Death” Frederik Ruysch (1638–1731) was a Dutch anatomist, embalmer, botanist and physician. He is best remembered for his macabre, memento-mori-themed still-lives, in which he posed fetal skeletons as if alive in landscapes of human remains. He exhibited these—along with equal fanciful wet specimens—in his Amsterdam home, until they were purchased by Tsar Peter the Great of Russia. September 10, join us for a day-long symposium celebrating our new book Frederik Ruysch and his Thesaurus Anatomicus: A Morbid Guide, featuring illustrated lectures by translator Richard Faulk, author and scholar Dr. Stephen Asma, anatomical artist Eleanor Crook, medical historian and curator Dr. Laurens de Rooy, conservator Willem J. Mulder, and Dr. Bert van de Roemer exploring the Dutch anatomist’s astounding life and work. Admission to the symposium is free with purchase of the deluxe edition of Frederik Ruysch and His Thesaurus Anatomicus: A Morbid Guide. LEARN MORE AND REGISTER HERE
