About this work
The shelves in the surgery are full of bottles labelled: "modestie", "honnestete", humilite", "obeissance" etc., and many more 'good ' qualities. A practitioner pours a liquid entitled: "sagesse" into the mouth of a patient who sits on a commode excreting fools. The other practitioner holds another patient on a wooden stretcher while his head is placed in a furnace from which all follies, vices and fantasies are being expelled
