First Vision

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating engraving by the 17th-century German artist, Lucas Kilian. This intricately detailed print is titled "First Vision, from Mirrors of the Microcosm," and was created in 1613. The image showcases an anatomical study of the human body, with a focus on the intricacies of the chest and abdominal region. The print is a complex composition, with various body parts arranged in a seemingly chaotic yet organized manner. The central figure is a man, with his chest opened to reveal the intricacies of the heart and lungs. To his left, a woman's torso is depicted, with her abdomen exposed to reveal the intricacies of the digestive system. The figures are surrounded by smaller anatomical drawings of various organs and body parts. The print is a masterpiece of the Baroque era, with its intricate detailing and bold use of contrast. The engraving on ivory laid paper has discolored to a buff hue, giving it an antique and historic feel. The letterpress printed ivory laid paper and the cream wove paper on which the print is mounted add to the overall texture and aesthetic of the piece. The "First Vision" print is a fascinating glimpse into the world of 17th-century anatomical studies. It is a reminder of the importance of understanding the human body and the role that art played in the exploration and documentation of anatomy during this time. This print is a must-see for anyone with an interest in art, history, or anatomy and can be found in various art centers, galleries, and museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago.
