"A GRACEFUL DEATH" by Antonia Rolls

I post the link of another artists who followed the journey of her partner from life to death by portraying him. The exhibition of this journey can be seen at St. James's Piccadilly - London from March 27 to April 10 2012. The author describes the exhibition with these words on her blog: 

"A Graceful Death started with painting the last few weeks, days and day of the life of my partner as he gracefully left this life. It has grown to include paintings of others at the most important part of their lives, as they near the end, and of those who are left behind."
