Anatomical Study of Flayed Male L'ecorche by Houdon or also know as Anatomy Study of Man by Houdon. In Rome, the young Houdon was given the opportunity to study human anatomy extensively thanks to a surgeon. In 1767, he modeled the famous L'ecorche, an anatomical study of a flayed male which allowed the muscles to be observed in detail. Houdon Anatomical Male Sculpture reproduction is made from resin with a bronze finish. Wonderful for a drawing study or artist cast.
