To Carla and Amy:
I watched that show, so I did an internet search on Fragonard on INFOSEEK. Dr. Honore Fragonard was the cousin of Jean-Honore Fragonard. He was a teacher at the National School of Veterinary Medicine at Maisons-Alfort, France. Read more at this web address:

http://www.daily.umn.edu/daily/1996/10/31/world_nation/wn31a.ap/

If that web address doesn't get you there, search INFOSEEK. Use the word Fragonard. You should find the information in the first 10 sites.

Other artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci used cadavers for their art and science. They just didn't preserve them for posterity.

Hope this satisfies your curiosity. I know it did mine.
