Écorché

Écorché is an exercise in drawing, painting or sculpture of the human figure that shows the muscles of the body without the skin and subcutaneous fat, so that the skeletal and muscular system are visible. The term was commonly used in the French Academies of the 19th century.

As a method of anatomical study, écorché involves a constructive approach to modelling the figure, sculpting the bones and muscles layer by layer, working up to the most superficial layers of the body. This allows the artist to reach a deeper level of understanding of how bone, muscle and fat combine to create the human form.
