Ecorche Anatomical Man Study Model Artist Cast Sculpture

Ecorche Anatomical Man Study Model Artist Cast Sculpture

A couple of blogs ago we discussed our old world drawing models consisting of shapes and the human form. Here is another example of an anatomical study model. Crafted by Tom Hester, the son of a surgeon and a lifetime student of organic architecture, the Hester Studios Ecorche series begins with this standing male flayed figure, correct in every detail. Anatomical accuracy is elusive and study models are essential for the artist interested in capturing human character. No longer do students of musculature need to dig in graveyards for their research. Centuries of dissection have been documented in countless texts, illustrations and sculptures and now Tom Hester carries on the tradition, presenting this information in a detailed 25.5 tall figure.

Even those not interested in drawing can find appreciation in the perfection of human form. This would make a great gift for a recent graduate of medical school or a doctor opening practice.

Anatomical Study of Flayed Male L’ecorche by Houdon is another great anatomical study. In Rome, the young Houdon was given the opportunity to study human anatomy extensively thanks to a surgeon. In 1767, he modeled the famous L’ecorche, an anatomical study of a flayed male which allowed the muscles to be observed in detail.  Houdon Anatomical Male Sculpture reproduction is made from resin with a bronze finish. Wonderful for a drawing study or artist cast.
