Includes a painting by Lomont that I hadn't previously encountered:

Kind of cynical, for Death, trampling Hippocrates, to call the physician "Collaborator". Although we found this in Lesage's Le Diable boiteux :

 

"Sur une de ses ailes sont peint la guerre, la peste, la famine, le naufrage, l'incendie, avec les autres accidents funestes qui lui fournissent à chaque instant une nouvelle proie; et l'on voit sur l'autre aile de jeunes médecins qui se font recevoir docteurs, en présence de la mort, qui leur donne le bonnet, après leur avoir fait jurer qu'ils n'exerceront jamais la médecine autrement qu'on la pratique aujourd'hui."

Referred to on page 207 of this article by Weber:

http://europepmc.org/articles/PMC2003543/pdf/procrsmed00948-0198.pdf

I interpreted the painting as a quack pharmacist who kills more patients than he cures, hence the 'collaboration' with Death.
