Research Facts
Information about Kaye Rudolph as a medical illustrator remains an unknown entity. There is no documented association with the Queen's Department of Anatomy or Medical Art and Photography. The illustrations were created to accompany the OB/GYN wax moulages Dr. Robertson commissioned sculptor / artist Marjorie Winslow to create as didactic teaching aids in his lectures to his medical students. The panels appear to be painted enlargements of original illustrations done by the famous medical artist Dr. Frank Netter (1906-1991).
