"A Quack Dentist Extracting A Tooth, While A Group Of Onlookers Watch Nearby"
Gerrit Van Honthorst
early 1600's (?)
This seemed appropriate for today - since I am off this morning to have a tooth extracted. I can only hope there won't be gawking onlookers at my dentist's office . . . but I'm sure I'll be making a face similar to the poor fellow in this painting.
