Grant's Atlas of Anatomy

With the outbreak of World War I in , Dr. Grant joined the Royal Army Medical Corps and served with dlstlnctlon. He was mentioned In dispatches In September , received the Military Cross In September for "conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during attack," and received a bar to the Military Cross in August With the frontline medical practitioner in mind, he endeavored to "bring up a generation of surgeons who knew exactly what they were doing once an operation had begun.

Grant took interest In other projects, such as performing anthropometric studies of Indian tribes in northern Manitoba during the s. In Winnipeg, Dr. Grant met catriona Christie, whom he manied in Grant was known for his reliance on logic, analysis, and deduction as opposed to rote memory.

While at the University of Manitoba, Dr. In Grant accepted the position of Chair of Anatomy at the University of Toronto. Before the war, the Fig. While printed in North America in English, these multi-volume Fig. One last innovation introduced by Grant was the extraneous information connected to the idea that this is systematic incorporation of photography into the process of a person, not just a body or cadaver, to be considered a image production.

Rather than offering his readers ical veracity of photography could visually transpose a photographic images as tokens of modernity and scientific three-dimensional specimen, a cadaver, into an entity that promise, he incorporated photography into his method of would live in the two-dimensional space of the printed page. What one finds instead are exacting, replication, described in the Introduction to the Atlas: purposeful hand-drawn renderings of anatomical structures In the execution of these illustrations the following pre- based on an initial photographic tracing.

Yet despite line drawings. As we shall see, each approach used unique the increasing proliferation of the photographic image as well visual techniques, and fulfilled separate pedagogical roles. Part of this, no doubt, was due to the rela- editions the illustrations have been colourized for market rea- tively poor quality of the photographic image and printing techniques of the time.

More important, perhaps, was the indiscriminate nature of the photographic image: all details of Fig. Carbon-dust, a technique used almost Medicine and Surgery, published by J. Note the degradation of the images pro- facial features on heads with the skin peeled back.

While duced, due to the limitations of the offset printing McClellan could claim to be producing images that were technologies used by the publisher. Why do these Why do the illustrations work so well with such a limited line drawings play such a distinct role in the Atlas? As vision research suggests, just one of the three Linear depiction is a special case in visual perception.

Colour, of course, is not without arbitrary language: instead, he has discovered a stimulus use in the real world, and in anatomical representation: it can that is equivalent in some way to the features by which aid in the segmentation of complex scenes, and in the catego- the visual system normally encodes the images of objects rization of structures.

In choosing to present illustrations rather than photographs, Skilled illustrators use various techniques to extend the Grant was eliminating the unnecessary visual complexity typical expressive range of line drawings. In choosing to illustrate in tone, rather than full colour, Grant and the illustrators arrived at a Occlusion method that was both cost effective to print, and visually pow- Occlusion, where a nearer object overlaps a more distant erful.

In addition to their skill at producing didactic line and object in the visual field, is the most powerful depth cue. These rendering techniques created the necessary illusion of depth to depict, with visual conviction and Line weight accuracy, the complex spatial and functional inter-relationships Line weight may be used to denote various kinds of contours, of anatomical structures and systems without the use of colour.

The resulting pattern forms a type of linear texture gra- tography. We will briefly enumerate some of the illustrative dient.

In many circumstances, line drawings also provide visual scaffolds that would allow students to form the proper con- ceptual models of the structure—function relationships in the human body. Skilled and able illustrators use a wide range of techniques to refine a special- ized visual representation, and accurately depict the three- dimensional subject on a two-dimensional page. As our essay highlights, even with the introduction of photog- raphy, the role of the medical illustrator remained vital, particu- larly in the promotion of an image-centric regional approach to anatomy.

The illustrators who were primary to the six editions produced under the tutelage of Grant — Dorothy Foster Chubb, Nancy Joy, Elizabeth Blackstock, and Eila Hopper-Ross — were skilled visual communicators, whose training reflected years of reflective practice and apprenticeship-derived conventions from their predecessors in medical illustration and from aca- demic schools of art.

As we have also demonstrated, many of the design heuristics used by these illustrators are supported by recent research in visual perception. Understanding these lessons of the past, and their perceptual bases, may help influ- ence the form taken by future education-oriented visualiza- tions, and underscores the need for a more detailed reading of the visual culture of our medical past in order to understand the ever-changing present and future of both biomedicine and medical illustration.
