Notes/Description:
Dr. Mary Winkler, Literature and Medicine, Volume 11, Number 2, Fall 1992: "Alan Blum's sketches are one medical practitioner's response to the fragmentation and disintegration of a long tradition of observation. Through his sketches, with their scraps of dialogue, Blum has reconciled two kinds of knowledge that have long been separated: the powerful and objective knowledge made possible by imaging technology, and the artist's knowledge of a person as individual and whole."
