The Maladies of Artists

Artists whose lives were cut short as casualties of war, or victims of epidemics; artists struggling with debilitating diseases: they made great art; and, of course, no one will ever know what art would have been made after their passing. They left their mark in the art world. Today’s show pays tribute to some of these artists and their legacies.
