The Real Deal

Frank H. Netter, M.D., born 1906 and died 1991 is probably the foremost medical illustrator of all time. After posting my simple eyeball I remembered a portfolio my husband gave me of Netter’s “The Five Senses”. Thought I’d post his eye so you could see what it really looks like and because it is beautiful.

    Nina, I’m glad you posted this. Frank Netter is one of the reasons I became interested in illustration. An early job of mine with a medical device company had me spending a lot of time studying Netter’s drawings of the heart. I just could not get over the clarity and beauty of his renderings. The are lovely and fascinating. He’s a hero of mine. Thanks!
