Dorothy Davison – artist of the week

We are very pleased to share some of the medical illustrations from the Association’s archives. Here are a few artworks created by Dorothy Davison, Founder Member of the Medical Artists’ Association in 1949. She was medical artist at the Manchester Royal Infirmary and the University of Manchester from around 1918 until her retirement in 1957. Renowned for her striking artworks using the Ross board technique (carbon dust) depicting neurological anatomy and surgery. Our current chairman Philip Wilson was lucky enough to have met Dorothy and described her as having “the stature of a dormouse but the constitution of a lioness”!
