    The Degen company of Frankfurt was a manufacturer of bandages and dressings, examples of which can be seen in the poster. Schultz-Wettel has composed the scene in the style of a sacra conversazione (holy conversation) of Italian religious painting, implying that the firm's products possibly fulfilled more than routine commercial purposes.
