About this work
Satire on the exercise-therapy for gout practised by the gout-doctor Abraham Buzaglo (d. 1788), who may be portrayed standing in the background in profile to the left. The figures are shown in the artificial poses shown in Bartolozzi's print after Nathaniel Dance, "Jason et Medée Ballet tragique", which satirizes the "tragic attitudes" of the actor Gaetan Vestris (B.M. Cat. of satires no. 5910)
