Sir Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910) was a distinguished surgeon as well as a world-renown artist. He was a principal figure in the etching revival in Britain, as well as founder of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers. Sherborn presents Haden within an ornamental frame that includes the tools of both trades in which he was so accomplished. On the benefits of artistic training for the medical practitioner, Haden stated, “How much sooner would the eye -- accustomed to observe and estimate closely the differences of color, aspect, weight, and symmetry -- learn to gauge their aberrations as the signs which make up the facies of the disease; how much better than the hand, trained to portray them accurately, be able to direct with precision and safety the course of the knife!”
