Caption: Uroscopy. Satirical artwork titled 'Of Prescribing Foolishly', showing a patient in bed with a doctor in a fool's hat (right) inspecting a sample of the patient's. This artwork was by the German painter Albrecht Durer (1471-1528). It illustrated chapter 52 of 'Das Narrenschiff' (Ship of Fools, 1494), a collection of morality tales of medieval vices as told by the German humanist Sebastian Brant (1457-1521). This artwork, from the 1497 Latin edition, was reproduced in 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).
