The Maladies of Artists, part III

Our third program about artists whose lives were cut short due to disease, addiction, accidents, and issues arising from lives of poverty and single-minded obsession.  We’ll talk about a few  great artists and their legacies: bodies of work that challenged the past, advanced vision, and opened new possibilities, so that artists who came after could scoop it up, absorb it and add to the unknown and unseen.              Originally broadcast June 30, 2018
