Relentless and Intimate - Macabre Wall Art

Since humans had artistic materials at their disposal, their paintings documented all stages of life. Death and grief were as much a part of it as conception and birth. But over time, these depictions changed. From innocuous sketches on cave walls, they evolved into significant images, shaped by prevailing beliefs. Foremost among them is the religious interpretation of death and grief. The Passion of Christ and his resurrection are the subjects of numerous artworks - closely followed by believers who died as martyrs and were canonized. A noticeable change in representation is evident: until the end of the Middle Ages, depictions of death and grief were quite unadorned; it was only in the modern era that they became increasingly aestheticized. However, paintings on these themes could also have an informative character and/or criticize societal structures. Examples include crowned heads on their deathbeds and paintings of battle or execution scenes. The practice of taking death masks or portraying the deceased one last time also emerged. Finally, the grotesque and oppressive aspects came to the forefront. Disturbing depictions like the nightmarish works of the Spanish painter de Goya (Pinturas Negras) or amusing personifications of death and grief continue to fascinate many viewers to this day. With the advent of photography, representations of death and grief underwent fundamental changes.
