Two heads in profile against a grey sea, representing hope and despair in cases of cancer. Colour lithograph after A. Games, 1947 by Abram Games( Visual )
1 edition published in 1947 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
To encourage donors to act positively, the hopeful and inspiring parts of the work (yellow) transcend the grey parts, yet the latter are not downplayed. The artist interprets the disease in personal, social and philosophical terms, rather than in the language of science (no men in white coats, graphs or histopathology). Games tried to put into his works designs that could not easily be taken in at one glance, to make people look at his work more than once and, in this case, feel for the cancer sufferer
