About this work

Description

The interior of a room. On the right a seated woman stretches out her right foot, to which an old woman applies a cupping glass. The old woman has spectacles on her nose and a funnel on her head. Behind her, almost on the middle of the floor, a fat man sharpens a surgical instrument (translation of Bartsch's description)
