Provenance

In 1939 Robert Latou Dickinson and artist Abram Belskie collaborated at the New York Academy of Medicine to create a sixteen model series of the birth of a child for display at the 1939 World's Fair in New York. 20572 is either the original birth series 20 or a reproduction made shortly thereafter. In 1945, Dickinson transferred his reproductive anatomy model collection to the Cleveland Health Museum. In 2007 the Health Museum was absorbed into the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and at that time transferred the Dickinson-Belskie collection to the Warren Anatomical Museum.
