Pauline Lariviere, born 1906 in suburban Montreal, attended Johns Hopkins Art as Applied to Medicine program in Baltimore (1931-1932) to study with Max Brodel. She then returned to McGill University, Montreal, then worked in England, Chicago and New York City. Research todate suggests she was as a freelance medical illustrator/artist throughout her career. She reportedly died in 1988.
The following two extracted newspaper clippings are presented below to lend critical public response to her work as a medical artist. She completed numerous medical illustrations for physicians in England, the medical charts referenced here while working in Chicago and worked on commercial assignments in New York City - one being the most creative use of the anatomical charts for a Red Cross publication.
Chicago Tribune 1948: Eleanor Jewitt writes of an art event for the annual American Medical Association meeting. “Three beautifully presented anatomical charts by Pauline Lariviere, … are of greatest consequence. She has been working on 10 charts for three years and completed seven. The charts are painted in oil and are truly remarkable.”
Baltimore Sun 1950: Selma Sachs writes of The Maryland Influence from a “polite little Canadian” and former student of the late Max Brodel, Pauline M. Lariviere that “is pioneering a new type of medical art.”
“She is preparing for publication what is described as the first of full-sized anatomical charts to be painted in the Twentieth Century.
Her work has been called an historical occasion in medical art and from the fine arts point-of-view, an exciting moment as well.
She has taken liberty with color, she has used free perspective, [and] she has, whenever necessary for her story, deliberately distorted. The result is charts which are not only edifying and accurate, but are aesthetically pleasurable.”
