This article illustrates and discusses how sociological theory is produced starting from empiri-cal data with the grounded theory method of Glaser and Strauss. The article focuses on the importance of observation in qualitative research practices. With reference to a painting by Olivuccio di Ciccarello on the themes of care and health, the essay reflects critically and self-critically on the fact that, while observation is based on visual language, the production of so-ciological theory is, instead, based on verbal. What emerges is the problematic nature of quali-tative empirical data and its characteristic of data interpreted, translated, and constructed in re-search practices.
Keywords: doing grounded theory; observation; visual language; conceptualizing; Olivuccio di Ciccarello; care and health.
