Fritz Kahn (1888-1968), a German-Jewish physician and popular science writer, was one of the first proponents of modernist scientific illustrations, which were conceptual, metaphorical and self-consciously modern in their aesthetics. Historian Michael Sappol situates Kahn's illustrations and larger agenda within Weimar cultural politics, analyzes key images and genres and discusses the global diffusion of modernist conceptual scientific illustration. Sappol is a curator and historian at the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Presented by the BFA Fine Arts Department.
