and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An elderly man with a white beard and a fur-trimmed hat is seated, centre, directed towards a table, left, on which he rests a large book. On the table are a globe (apparently a celestial globe) and some drug jars. The suggestion is that he is a savant or would-be savant with an interest in medicine and astral sciences. There are six drug jars on the left and four on the right. The drug jars are similar to those in a painting sold as by Heemskerck at Sotheby's London (Olympia) on 6 July 2004, lot 483, signed EHK, in which there are six on the left and three on the right

Operators letting blood from the arm of a woman in a room crowded with pharmacy jars. Oil painting by Egbert van Heemskerck by Egbert van Heemskerck( Visual )

and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The operators are wearing the distinctive hats of mountebanks and other open-air performers. However the painting shows them operating in an etablished surgeon-apothecary's premises. The contrast might be explained by a passage in Sir Thomas Overbury's "Characters": A quacksalver ... All the diseases ever sinne brought upon man, doth he pretend to bee curer of; when the truth is, his maine cunning, is corne-cutting. ... He parts stakes with some apothecary, in the suburbes at whose house hee lies: and though he be never so familiar with his wife; the apothecary dares not (for the richest horne in 's shoppe) displease him. All the midwives in the towne are his intelligencers; but nurses and yong merchants wives that (would faine conceive with childe) these are his idolaters. Hee is a more unjust bone-setter, then a dice-maker; he hath put out more eyes then the smal pox; made more deafe then the cataracts of Nilus; lamed more than the gout: shrunke more sinewes, then one that makes bow strings, and kild more idly, then tobacco. A magistrate that had any way so noble a spirit as but to love a good horse wel, would not suffer him to be a farrier. His discourse is vomit, and his ignorance, the strongest purgation in the world: to one that would be speedily cured, he hath more delaies and doubles then a hare, or a law suit: hee seekes to set us at variance with nature, and rather then wee shall want diseases, hee'le beget them. His especiall practise (as I said afore) is upon women; labors to make their mindes sicke, ere their bodies feele it, and then there's work for the dog-leach. Lastly he is such a juggler with urinals, so dangerously unskilfull, that if ever the city will have recourse to him for diseases that neede purgation, let them imploy him in scouring Moore-ditch." ("Sir Thomas Overbury his wife. With additions of new characters", London 1615)
Alehouse Brawl by Adriaen van Ostade( Visual )

and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A philosopher in his study, consulted by an old woman to determine from a flask of urine whether the young woman accompanying her is pregnant. Oil painting by Egbert van Heemskerck or a follower of Egbert van Heemskerck, ca. 1680 by Egbert van Heemskerck( Visual )

and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The philosopher, wearing a striped gown, sits at a table on which is a large open book and around which are many, mostly blue and white, drug jars. The old lady approaches him from the right, holding a flask of urine; she is followed by a younger woman in exotic dress. On the right margin is the outstretched hand of an unseen figure, suggesting that the canvas has been cropped at the right edge. A painting by Van Heemskerck of a similar subject was offered for sale by Sotheby's, London, 17 December 1998, lot 332 (signed EH)
Interior with doctor, assistant, old woman and girl. Oil painting by Egbert van Heemskerck by Egbert van Heemskerck( Visual )

and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this painting an old woman has brought for examination the urine of the weeping young woman in the background: the implication is that she is pregnant, and that the man examining the urine is a urine-scryer who can detect pregnancy by "seeing" in the urine a foetus or some other sign not visible to ordinary people. The words "water-caster" and "water-doctor", Dutch "pis-besiender", were applied to such figures. However, from the customer's point of view there was no clear boundary between that kind of urine-examination and the kind practised by physicians
