Page from my a visual essay A.C.2020. I created this to express anxiety and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 epidemic.
In 1918 Egon Schiele died from the Spanish Flu pandemic. He was 28 years old.

"Sometime in mid-October, Egon Schiele’s wife, Edith falls ill with the flu. She is 6 months pregnant and despite the desperate care from her husband Egon, she succumbs to the flu on October 28. Three days later, on October 31, Egon Schiele followed his wife and unborn child into the after world in the early hours of the day."

This comic is based exclusively on the photos of Egon before and after his death.
