Honoré Fragonard’s 18th-Century écorché

This 18th-century écorché (anatomical figure depicting an animal or human with the skin removed to show the location and interplay of the muscles.) by Honoré Fragonard predates plastination by 250 years. Fragonard never divulged his preservation methods. In 1771, he was expelled from his teaching position at the École Nationale Vétérinaire d’Alfort as a madman.
