Portrait of Elizabeth Powis showing a leg amputation

View of Elizabeth Powis, reclining on a curtained bed, propped up against pillows. She holds her dress and petticoat to one side, showing the scar and stump from the amputation of her left leg at the hip. Powis wears a dark red or purple dress with a white lace collared undershirt. She has a blue and gold shawl and a bonnet with flowers and ribbon. Plate 1 from the publication A memoir on amputation of the thigh at the hip joint, (with a successful case) by William Sands Cox FRS (London, 1845). This surgical case is described within the text. Elizabeth Powis, a 23-year old (in 1845) seamstress, had undergone an amputation at the knee six years before admission to the Queen's Hospital, Birmingham, England in 1842, for additional treatment. As a result of the morbid condition of the remaining leg, it was removed by operation on 1 November 1842. Inscribed below: "Bradley, del. Leonard lith. Reeve, Brothers imp:"

Original: lithograph . 1845
