The Anatomy of Dr. Tulp

Dr. Tulp's Anatomy is a painting by Dutch painter Rembrandt. The work, which measures 216.5 cm × 169.5 cm, was completed in 1632 and is now hanging in the Mauritshuis in The Hague.

Two people in this picture are particularly exposed: one is Dr. Nicolaes Tulp, who explains the skeletal muscles to the spectators present using the dissection of the left arm of the person to be autopsied. The other is the dead man lying on the table, commonly identified as Adriaan Adriaanszoon, but this is increasingly being questioned. Adriaanszoon was a violent attacker who was hanged for his crimes. The other people are probably Jacob Jansz Colevelt, Adrian Cornilsz Slabberaen, Mathys Evertsz Calkoen, Jacob Jans de Witt, Jacob Dielofse Block and Frans van Loenen, who can be supported by both the order situation and the paper held in the middle in his hand. Anatomy demonstrations took place in the 17th century as a social event. They took place in classrooms, like the so-called anatomical theaters; the public, often colleagues, students and notables, had to pay for admission. The people involved in the exhibition were paid with the money raised.
