Other 18th century artists also probably made bronze casts as M Baker records Albert Pars being awarded a premium for a ‘cast of an Anatomy figure, after Spang’ in 1767 by the Society of Artists.
Since the renaissance flayed anatomical male figures have held a fascination for artists, and ecorché figures remain a popular study for students of art and life drawing.
