Visualizing Disease explores pathological illustrations from the 16th century to the first half of the 19th, in the period from the first representations of remarkable cases to the first comprehensive treatises with color images of diseases affecting the entire human body. The exhibition documents how between the 18th and the 19th centuries pathological illustrations played a key role in the transformation of the understanding of disease.
Curated by Professor Domenico Bertoloni Meli, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, this exhibition includes never before displayed works from the Bushong-Beasley Dermatology Collection, recently donated to the Lilly Library.
