17th century portrait of anatomist Govard Bidloo
This public domain image comes from a 17th century medical textbook, published by anatomist Govard Bidloo, who is the subject of the portrait in the above image. The hand-sketched visage is one of the many drawings found in this 300-year-old volume.
Bidloo’s text, Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams, was published in 1690 and contained this image. Because of this pre-1923 publication date, this image is in the public domain.
