The Art of Dying (Lavrenty Bruni, 1994)

My Artist of the Week is going to be the contemporary Russian Lavrenty Bruni.

This work is appropriate in the context of the recent death of Metropolitan Laurus Skurla of the ROCOR. The representation is that of an ending, but, it does not appear to show a violent end. Likewise, Vladyki Laurus passed quietly in his sleep, without notice, without pain. That is how we all should go when our time comes, as it inevitably does.
