Caption

The Company of Undertakers (1736), also known as 'Consultation of Quacks'. This satirical artwork was designed and engraved by the English artist William Hogarth (1697-1764). It takes the form of undertakers (or quacks) within a coat-of-arms, with crossbones and the Latin motto 'Et Plurima Mortis Imago' (And Many an Image of Death). The three figures at top, from left to right, are: John Taylor, Sarah Mapp, and Joshua Ward. Those below them are sniffing the disinfectant in their canes. The English caption below refers to Quack-heads, Cane-heads, and Demi-doctors.
