Anatomical Man (New) - Item #626
Each piece is custom finished. Depending on a sculpture’s texture and level of detail, the look of a patina can vary. A slight variation in color from order-to-order is to be expected.
Unless otherwise noted, our reproductions are hand-cast in plaster and reinforced with burlap, fiber strands, and/or metal rods for extra strength.
FLAT WHITE: A unified, matte white finish. This is the optimum patina for cast drawing as it allows focus on form.
WHITE PATINA: A white finish with a light ivory tone added to the top surfaces.
LIGHT ANTIQUE PLASTER: A soft mixture of whites, grays, and yellows to replicate the look of an aged plaster cast.
ANTIQUE PLASTER: A dramatic mixture of grays and yellows to replicate the look of an aged plaster cast.
BRONZE: A rich brown finish with golden highlights to replicate the look of bronze.
STONE: A mixture of lighter tones to resemble natural stone.
DARK STONE: A mixture of darker tones to resemble natural stone.

Also known as L'Ecorche Combattant, this piece was an anatomical study by the Neoclassical French sculptor Jacques-Eugene Caudron (1818-1865). Caudron studied at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Pierre-Jean David d'Angers. A French doctor, Antoine-Louis-Julien Fau, asked Caudron to sculpt the anatomical figure for his book on human anatomy for artists' reference, first published in 1845.
