The Flayed Angel[1] is an anatomical drawing (1746) from Myologie complete, by Jacques Fabien Gautier d'Agoty .

"The Flayed Angel", was published in Paris by the anatomist and artist Jacques Fabien Gautier d'Agoty in 1745. This is a three-foot-high, colour portrait of a nude, seated woman, viewed from the back with her face turned in a three-quarter profile. Her back is slit open up the spine, and her skin and muscles are peeled aside on both left and right to reveal the ribs and spine beneath.
