Dead Mother [EOL in Art 74]

Reminiscent of “The Scream,” here is Munch’s “Dead Mother.”  With her back turned to her mother who lies in bed, dead, a young girl, eyes wide in disbelief, holds her hands to her ears as if to block out the reality and the stillness. An aura of suspension, incomprehensibility, or unearthly silence begs the question: is she truly calm, or screaming on the inside?
