This is the original Gouache painting by James E McConnell.

The Scourge From the East: The Desperate Doctors. The Black Death sweeps across Europe in the Middle Ages. Jews were scapegoats and attacked widely; plus, doctors mixed up 'cures' from up to 60 ingredients.

Original artwork from Look and Learn no. 463 (28 November 1970). Note that there is a crease in the board where it has been folded in the centre where you see the face of the woman wearing a black corset. Also the panel with the doctor has been pasted on to extend the art. This is reflected to the asking price. It remains a wonderful group scene, something that McConnell excelled at.
