About this picture

Description

A physician is holding a flask of urine. He wears a black skullcap and looks at the viewer with a knowing expression. The flask has been brought to him by the couple and the implications are that the woman might be pregnant. The physician and the man have archaic costume (i.e. earlier than the date of the painting)
