The anatomy lesson in the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp is the only known Flemish painting of this subject. Although the work has long been attributed to Huibrecht Sporckmans (1619-1690) and dated 1660, the author reattributes it to the Antwerp painter Frans Denys (1610-1670) and gives evidence for a new date of 1648.
