WHEN ME AND MY BEST FRIEND FINALLY WERE BOTH 21
[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family. A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]
I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.
it’s really interesting seeing death portrayed as a woman
This is so powerful and chilling. Influenza.
