The Touch - Medicine in the 19th Century

Print of 'the touch'

 

Classic illustration of a woman's medical exam by a her doctor. Many 19th century medical textbooks used this illustration to show the proper manner to examine a female patient. The physician's eyes are diverted so he will not violate the woman's "modesty."
