"This striking picture, by a celebrated French artist, has excited marked attention ever since it was first exhibited at the Paris Salon. The grouping is admirable, and by the abscence of all accessories the interest is skillfully concentrated on the principal personage, the attending surgeon, and the pale boy whose arm he is bandaging and who is striving not to wince beneath the treatment.

The strongly lined faces of the peasants, with their vary expressions, contrasted with the rude interior, form a graphic study." — Blaisedell, 1904
