Caption: Stroke (apoplexy). Satirical artwork of a patient attended by his wife and physicians, following a sudden loss of consciousness, then known by the term apoplexy and most likely a stroke. This would usually be fatal. Several labelled bottles are shown in the background. This artwork, which dates from 1822, was originally by the French artist Charles Aubry. This later copy is from the German book 'Die Karikatur und Satire in der Medizin' (Caricature and Satire in Medicine, 1921) by the German art historian and physician Eugen Hollander (1867-1932).
