The Tooth Puller

Pietro Longhi

Longhi illustrates daily life in the Venice of his day, adopting a form of genre painting that reveals his acute observation of contemporary society, its habits and its surroundings. His art focuses on all classes of society as we can see in the Tooth Puller, in which aristocrats and plebeians alike display an interest in events in the city. The painting is signed beneath the stool.
