The medical profession has always been a very important part of history. Very often it is the reflection of general historical and social events. The winds of history and social turbulences change the doctor’s role in society as well as the way people who aren’t doctors see them. People who expect doctor’s help certainly view this person very differently and he holds a special place in their lives. However, not all people have the skill and the talent to present the complexity of this doctor-patient relationship to the world. Artists have the ability to present to the world what they see and what they feel through their art and tell the story about the doctor and the patient and multiple layers of their relationship. The emotional aspect of this relationship is one of the most important ones and we can measure an artist and their art by the amount of emotions we feel when we are looking at an art piece.
In this article seven artworks by seven authors will be analyzed all of which represent the doctor-patient relationship. Each of these paintings has its own story, it represents the social and historical environment of the time period in which it was created and it shows different types of patients and presents doctors in different ways. The thing all of these artworks have in common is the central motif – the doctor and the patient and their relationship. The artist gives us an opportunity to observe and to experience medical practice and to witness the doctor-patient relationship in a different way.
