"Satire was the language of the age...In the eighteenth century there was a great vogue for satirical prints- political and social. This was the golden age of the English engraver...caricature shops had a popularity of their own. Their prints were virtually the only pictorial rendering of the flow of events, moods and fashions. Especially, they reflect the social attitudes of the day."
The Language of the Age: Depictions of Medicine in Graphic Satire is an exhibit curated by Peter Rawson for the Center for the History of Medicine. The online exhibit was created in OnView by Andra Langoussis in February 2014.
