This is one painting in a set of 12. There was a family of artists called Gautier D’Agoty, of which Jacques-Fabien was the first. He became well known for his part in the development of colour printing: in association with anatomists such as Pierre Tarin and Joseh-Guichard Duverney, he published some of the first colour prints of anatomical and natural historical subjects. He also painted two sets of 12 anatomical figures in 1765 as models for his life-size colour prints.
