The source image for print Emerging Infectious Diseases is a rare French woodcut, ca. 1500 which accompanied the poem La Complainte et Epitaph de feu Roy Charles--a recapitulation of the vicissitudes of man. The sick man is attended by a physician, the man receiving spiritual consolation, the corpse being prepared for burial, and the well man, about to leave, receiving a word of advice from a physician in the background.
Carl Zigrosser in ARS MEDICA, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1959.
