About the Image

Medical Purging, Satirical Artwork by

Medical purging. Satirical artwork showing a physician (in robes) and his assistant purging patients. Follies and fantasies are purged in a cloud (upper right) using an oven to bake the head. Fools are purged using a drug to force excretion (left). Originally French, this later German artwork was drawn in Strasbourg circa 1600 by German artist Matthias Greuter (1564-1638). This version names the doctor 'Wurmbrandt' (worm burner), and is part of a collection held in Frankfurt. This copy was reproduced in '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.
