Last Portrait of Mother [EOL in Art 5]

In 2010, Daphne Todd won the UK’s leading prize for portraiture.  She painted her 100-year-old mother Annie after she died. 

The undertaker allowed her to spend three days in the funeral parlor cool room painting her mother’s body, which can be seen emaciated and propped up on pillows, with her white hospital wristband still on.
