Medical Caricatures Exhibit during Arts Alive!.

September 28th, 2014  |  Published in Arts Alive

Artists embellished medical conditions, treatments, and lampooned practitioners.  The bizarre therapeutics and massive doses of medications are depicted in the show.  The public in the nineteenth century, as today, was frustrated with the inefficiency of medical treatments and the high costs of medical care and drugs.  With art and wit, the caricaturists elevated health issues to comic proportions and directed attention to public health problems.  Sequoia Humane Society will be serving wine from 6-9 p.m. Caricature by Adrian Barriere
