Female breast

  • On the Anatomy of the Breast -
  • Author: COOPER, Astley (1768–1841)
  • Drawn from Cooper’s own anatomical preparations, which were injected with coloured wax, these colourful lithographs show the mammary glands and lactiferous ducts as sectioned through the nipple. The superb and brilliantly hand-coloured lithographs are outstanding for their artistic qualities, reminiscent of modern abstract art.
