Meet the Author

Frank H. Netter was born in New York City in 1906. He studied art at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his Doctor of Medicine 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 and 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 continued to update Dr. Netter’s original paintings and to add newly commissioned paintings by artists trained in the style of Dr. Netter. In 2005, Elsevier Inc. purchased the Netter Collection and all publications from Icon Learning Systems. There are now over 50 publications featuring the art of Dr. Netter available through Elsevier Inc.
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 anatomic paintings from the Netter Collection. Now translated into 16 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 make them so intellectually valuable.
Frank H. Netter, MD, physician and artist, died in 1991.

    Good for study, not for dissection

    Netter is the classic anatomy atlas. Pristine plates make identification easy--a plus and a minus. Good if you'll only be looking at drawings. For dissection, I use Grant's. For study of dissection, I use Rohen's. To sit and study, I use Netter.

    a good start

    When I was studying gross anatomy, Netter was my hands down favourite. It was only later on that I realized there are several inaccuracies within the text and he often doesn't go into as much detail as is needed. Still, it's a classic work and everyone should have a copy... and then supplement it with Thieme, Pernkopf (or Clemente if you want to avoid the controversy), Sobotta and Gray's.

    Pretty pictures don't always cut it

    I will admit, Netter's illustrations are gorgeous. But a week into my med school anatomy class, the awe of pretty pictures was replaced by sheer frustration. Netter frivolously omits anatomical structures, draws incorrect anatomy, and mislabels. I found illustrations in Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy and Gray's Anatomy to be sufficient and less confusing. Text in those books also helped to clarify any uncertainties.

    Great Reference!

    I used this book as a side reference when I was taking a Neuroanatomy class. I used it a lot more than the class-assigned textbook. It's very clearly drawn & really helps to clarify complicated systems. I'd definitely recommend it. The drawings are amazing.

    Must Have for every Anatomy course!!

    This is an excellent resource for anyone in a high school, college, and especially graduate level Anatomy course!! The pictures are great and many of the pics are shown from multiple views making it even esier to get your bearings! My only complaint about it is the index in the back of the book isn't always user-friendly if you are looking for certain small, detailed parts of the pictures.

    Brilliant

    My wife is a medical student, and she says that Netter's made Anatomy class much easier to follow. I, on the other hand, am an illustrator. The atlas provides me with accurate, beautifully depicted structural details. Studying this book has helped me to understand the subcutaneous origins of all those skin ripples, folds, bulges, and lines. This book should be on every med student's shelf and every illustrator's shelf. If you're married like we are, then you only need one shelf!
