Jacques Gamelin

Jacques Gamelin  undertook his great work, Nouveau receuil d’ostéologie et de myologie, most likely funding its publication using some of his great inheritance. The work is known for its display of both talent and imagination, with striking scenes of the Resurrection, the Crucifixion, and skeletons at play. (adapted from nlm.nih.gov link)
