My research examines the arc of medical illustration through history, specifically how it is embedded in the fabric of our social world. With a specific focus on medical philosophy through art, I explore the changing social ideologies of different time periods. Drawing from illustrations, exhibitions, and the work of contemporary artists, I argue that through modern medicine’s interactions with fine art, the blending of theses two worlds helps us to understand the human psyche.
