Adalbert Franz Seligmann (1862-1945)

"Theodor Billroth Operating" 1890

Billroth was an important and influential pioneer in the field of abdominal surgery, close friend of Brahms, and one of the first musicians to attempt a scientific analysis of musicality. Little is known of the artist, but his name is saved from obscurity by this arresting picture of a hugely distinguished surgeon at work.
