Jan Josef Horemans was the leading painter of everyday life in Antwerp in the first half of the eighteenth century, and was master of the Antwerp painters' guild in 1706. With the aid of various tricks of composition, his pictures present a vivid account of episodes in private houses, inns and courtyards – in this case a surgeon's house to which a man has come to be treated for a wound or inflammation.
