Extended interview with Robert D. Hicks

Clip | 2m 41s

Robert Hicks, Director of the Mutter Museum, offers insights into the life and work of Dr. William Keene, whose portrait hangs in the "Anatomy Academy" exhibit. Dr. Hicks brings along an unusual item that was once in Keene's possession: a walking stick topped with an ivory figure that unites the themes of art, medicine, and a strain of criminality that once accompanied the study of anatomy.
