Caption: Women in medicine. Satirical artwork of a woman representing a doctor standing next to a statue named 'Esculape'. This is a French name for Asclepius, the Roman and Greek god of medicine. Titled 'Medicine you take with pleasure', this artwork is by the French artist Henri Gerbault (1863-1930), and was originally drawn for the French humour magazine 'Frou Frou'. This 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).
