Caption: Quack. Satirical artwork depicting a quack from Germany. Quack is a derogatory term referring to medical practitioners who defraud patients by claiming to have skills or qualifications that they do not possess, or offering treatments that fail to effect a cure. This artwork was originally published in England, and was then 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).
