About the Image

Cholera Doctor, Satirical Artwork by

Cholera doctor. Satirical artwork of a London doctor gaining wealth (money at lower left) during an 1835 cholera epidemic. He is feasting on a 'cholera pie' with a knife labelled 'The Lancet' (medical journal). Imps are dancing round the pie, and a jar of brandy is at lower right. 'Board of Wealth' is a wordplay on 'Board of Health'. Cholera is a bacterial infection of the intestines that can be fatal. This artwork is by the British caricaturist Isaac Robert Cruikshank (1789-1856). This version is from 'Die Karikatur und Satire in der Medizin' (Caricature and Satire in Medicine, 1921) by the German art historian and physician Eugen Hollander (1867-1932).

About the Artist -

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
