Carus studied medicine at the University of Berlin and later became a professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at the University of Dresden. In addition to his medical work, he was also a prolific painter, producing landscapes, portraits and religious scenes. Carus was interested in the relationship between art and science, believing that both were necessary for a complete understanding of the world. He wrote extensively on the subject, arguing that the study of art could help doctors better understand the human body and mind. Carus also made significant contributions to the field of psychology. He believed that the mind and body were connected and that mental health was as important as physical health. He developed a holistic approach to medicine, taking into account both the physical and psychological aspects of a patient's condition. Today, Carus is remembered as a pioneer in the fields of art, medicine and psychology. His work continues to influence artists, scientists and thinkers around the world.
