Anatomy of Man by Édouard Lantéri, 1901

Édouard Lantéri (31 October 1848 – 22 December 1917) was a French-born British sculptor. Lantéri was a professor at the Royal College of Art, and in 1900 became the College's first Professor of Modelling (1900–10). He produced these plaster écorché figures for his students to study from. They were cast by Enrico Cantoni and sold by Chapman & Hall Ltd.

The term écorché literally means ‘flayed’, with figures such as this one becoming popular with art and medical students from the 19th century, providing an understanding of the human anatomy.

The condition of the sculpture is stable and relatively good for his age. His left arm is detached but present. There are some small losses to the surface of the figure.

A fascinating and imposing decorative figure surviving from Edwardian England, having recently been unearthed from the bottom of a wardrobe in Edinburgh.
