Notes:
Cushing was given the three lifesize écorchés (skinless figures showing the muscles) by Vittorio Putti, Italian physician and historian of medicine. They were brought first to villa of Arnold C. Klebs at Nyon, where this photograph was taken. The engravings were created by Antonio Cattani, ca. 1780, from the celebrated écorchés carved in linden wood by Ercole Lelli in 1734 for the Anatomical Theatre in the Archiginnasio in Bologna.
