Painting inspired by cirrhosis of the liver

Cirr 1974
acrylic on canvas
Jack Bush (1909-1977)
“Cirr is an abbreviation for the disease cirrhosis. This diagnosis given to the artist was also accompanied by an illustration of unhealthy cells caused by the condition. The artist’s response to this disturbing information was to address his concerns through artistic expression.”
