The collector as consumer in eighteenth century Britain: Dr William Hunter (1718-1783) (360G-Wellcome-086344_Z_08_Z)

This research project aims to enhance the work that I have already completed on Dr William Hunter's lectures on Anatomy to students at the Royal Academy of Arts. The specific purpose of this paper is to identify and convey a particular 18th century aesthetic that valued the role of the craftsman/woman in the fine arts and is discernible in Hunter's teaching at the RA and in his production and display of anatomical specimens. However, this is also part of a wider project that forms a chapter in my PhD thesis: Dr William Hunter and the British School of Artists.
