One of Wood’s last works, Family Doctor depicts the slender and capable hands of Wood’s own doctor, Dr. A.W. Bennet as he holds a thermometer and stethoscope. Wood’s focused, detailed vision creates a deeply personal portrait of the doctor as a kind, simple, and intellectually focused porfessional. Focusing on the doctor’s hands in conjunction with the medical supplies suggests the skill of the doctor’s hands as important tools.
