With revolutionary perspective, Medicá takes a contemporary look at our medical past.
A revealing look at some of history's most innovative, descriptive, and beautiful medical depictions, this appumentary presents over 200 select images from 30 rare volumes that form a quintessential part of the Walker Library's History of Human Imagination. Ranging from one of the earliest depictions of an anatomical dissection in 1495 to the highest resolution brain scan in existence today, the illustrations and prints throughout have been executed with exquisite care and attention to detail.
Renowned for their content and historical context, the works are exhibited within the appumentary according to their identifying themes and keywords in order to enhance this immersive reader-driven experience.

- Zoom feature allows for enhanced viewing capabilities and reveals the drawings and prints in explicit detail
