Do you know what an écorché is? In this video, Uldis Zarins explains the word itself comes from French, where it means skinned. In the art world, this term describes a sculpture that reveals the superficial muscles of a male figure. Visit anatomy4sculptors.com to read our blog on this.

Écorché sits somewhere between art and medicine. While during the Renaissance the first écorchés were used mostly by artists, later they became increasingly popular among medical students as well.

In art education, understanding the poses and forms of superficial muscles is very important. Even the compositions of écorchés used in medical education were often very artistic. But they sometimes featured organs and deeper muscles, which the art students weren’t interested in.

Over time the interest of doctors in écorchés made the figures more anatomically accurate. Watch the video for the full story about the écorché's relationship with art and medicine.
