Size: A4 Portrait

This painting by Richard Tennant Cooper is an allegory for the disease diphtheria. It depicts a ghostly skeleton enveloping a sick child in bed, with its bony hands clasped around the child's throat, symbolizing the suffocating grip of the illness. The room suggests a typical sickroom of the period, with medicine on the bedside table and a black cat seated on a chair, adding to the eerie atmosphere. The use of dark, muted colors enhances the grim theme of the artwork.
