Caption: Hydropathy. Satirical artwork showing a patient being doused in ice-cold water as part of a form of water cure. This was known historically as hydropathy, and is now known as hydrotherapy. Hydropathy became popular in Europe during the 19th century. This artwork is from a collection of illustrations from the French satirical newspaper 'Le Charivari', published in Paris from 1832-1937. 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).
