DescriptionThe following statement appears in Le Dentiste D’Autrefois : 60 Reproductions, annotées par Georges Dagen (Paris : Editions de la Revue “La Semaine Dentaire” [no date]): “This English caricature dated November 1821 presents a corpulent dentist dressed in a royal blue coat with gilded buttons. Teeth are suspended for show, and the instruments for cleaning are mixed upon the table, while at the back are dentures and a horn mallet. The laboratory contains several books whose titles: Winter in London, Treatment of Teeth, Powders and Brushes, Miseries of the Human Life, The Bible, which serve to alloy the pleasant with the severe.” Original piece measures 21 X 26 cm.
