Goya and Dr. Arrias [EOL in Art 29]

This 1820 painting shows Dr. Arrias holding a pale and weakened Goya as he administers what might be his medicine. 

The positioning and gesture of the hands of the doctor express a determination to get his patient better, and his face expresses kindness and caring.  (HT: Jeffrey Levine)
