Summary: Frank H. Netter, M.D. was born in 1906 in New York City. He studied art at the Art Student's League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his M.D. degree in 1931. During his student years, Dr. Netter's notebook sketches attracted the attention of the medical faculty and other physicians, allowing him to augment his income by illustrating articles a...nd textbooks. He continued illustrating as a sideline after establishing a surgical practice in 1933, but he ultimately opted to give up his practice in favor of a full-time commitment to art. After service in the United States Army during World War II, Dr. Netter began his long collaboration with the CIBA Pharmaceutical Company (now Novartis Pharmaceuticals). This 45-year partnership resulted in the production of the extraordinary collection of medical art so familiar to physicians and other medical professionals worldwide. Icon Learning Systems acquired the Netter Collection in July 2000 and continues to update Dr. Netter's original paintings and to add newly commissioned paintings by artists trained in the style of Dr. Netter. Dr. Netter's works are among the finest examples of the use of illustration in the teaching of medical concepts. The 13-book Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations, which includes the greater part of the more than 20,000 paintings created by Dr. Netter, became and remains one of the most famous medical works ever published. The Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy, first published in 1989, presents the anatomical paintings from the Netter Collection. Now translated into 11 languages, it is the anatomy atlas of choice among medical and health professions students the world over. The Netter illustrations are appreciated not only for their aesthetic qualities, but more importantly, for their intellectual content. As Dr. Netter wrote in 1949, "... clarification of a subject is the aim and goal of illustration. No matter how beautifully painted, how delicately and subtly rendered a subject may be, it is of little value as a medical illustration if it does not serve to make clear some medical point." Dr. Netter's planning, conception, point of view, and approach are what inform his paintings and what makes them so intellectually valuable. Frank H. Netter, M.D., physician and artist, died in 1991.

Netter, Frank H. is the author of Atlas of Human Anatomy, published 2002 under ISBN 9781929007110 and 1929007116. Six Atlas of Human Anatomy textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, four used from the cheapest price of $5.49, or buy new starting at $71.07.

  • by Brandi

    This book is great for non M.D. students interested in Anatomy.

    I did not care for the way the chapters where organised.

  • by Jacob

    The most detailed anatomy book on the market today. Sturdy pages for labs and classroom for extended use, and excellent all around views for all anatomy pictures.

    I would appreciate more imaging (xray, CT) comparison studies next to anatomy pictures.
