English: This is an illustration of the anecdote about a poor father who, for some money, allows himself to be bled by a surgeon who needs practice. He uses the money to buy bread for his family, with the blood still running from his arms. Although the subject is contemporary, it is imbued with the same morality that characterised the portrayal of classical scenes. Like the Roman heroes in 18th century classicism, the father appears as an exemplum virtutis – a moral paragon for his time. Bilden återger anekdoten om den fattige fadern som mot betalning har låtit sig åderlåtas av en kirurg i behov av övning. För pengarna har han köpt bröd som han med blödande armar ger sin familj. Motivet är hämtat ur samtiden, men innehåller samma moraliserande som präglade tidens framställningar av antika scener. Liksom de romerska hjältarna i 1700-talets klassicerande måleri framstår fadern som ett exemplum virtutis – som ett moraliskt föredöme för sin samtid.
