Sick Woman and a Doctor by Jan Steen

  Another famous painting by Jan Steen showing a young lovely woman rests her head on a pillow. She is perhaps lovesick. Jan Steen here presents such a charlatan making a diagnosis. His old-fashioned attire characterizes him as a comic character.
  The theme of love sickness was extremely popular in both painting and the theater in the seventeenth century. Suppressed desire led to a vague syndrome known as ‘hysteria’. The satire is played out with the arrival of the doctor.
   The stamp was issues by USSR in 1973 with a very beautiful print.
