Plague doctor, France, 18th century Featured Image

Plague doctor, France, 18th century

Plague doctor. Artwork of the clothing used by doctors during plague outbreaks. This design, though in use much earlier, is from The Great Plague of Marseilles, France, in 1720. The plague (or Black Death) affected Europe from the 1340s to the 1700s. It is thought to have been bubonic plague, caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, and spread by fleas on rats. This outbreak, one of the largest in Europe in the early 18th century, killed over 100, 000 people. The costume's beaked bronze mask contained aromatic herbs. This reduced the smell for the doctor and the limited airflow through holes in the beak reduced exposure to "bad air". Gloves and a heavily oiled undergarment and cloak were also designed to reduce exposure. 19th century artwork by Daumier, published in Devils, Drugs and Doctors (London, 1929)

Caricature of Roentgen and X-rays

Caricature of Roentgen and X-rays. The German experimental physicist Wilhelm Konrad Roentgen (1845-1923) had discovered X-rays in 1895. This artwork shows his skeleton revealed by the use of X-rays. He was awarded the first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901. X-rays are today widely used in medicine as a diagnostic tool. This artwork was originally from Lustige Blatter, a weekly German humour magazine. 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)
