Caption

Dentistry caricature. The French title translates as 'balm of steel'. The patient's toothache is being treated by the steel of the dentist's pliers. Before the development of anaesthetics, tooth extraction was extremely painful. This original lithograph was published in Paris by Francois-Seraphin Delpech (1778-1825), with the original painting by the French artist Louis-Leopold Boilly (1761-1845). It was part of a series of 96 lithographs published between 1812 and 1828 under the title 'Recueil de grimaces' (A Collection of Grimaces).
