"Anguish" is a painting from 1878 by the German artist August Friedrich Albrecht Schenck. The painting depicts a single sheep in the foreground, who appears to be in extreme distress or torment. The sheep's face is contorted in a scream or a howl of pain, and its body is writhing in agony as it stands over its dead child. The background of the painting is dark and indistinct, adding to the sense of unease and foreboding. Schenck was known for his expressive and emotional depictions of the human form, and "Anguish" is a powerful example of his work in this vein. The painting is notable for its ability to convey a sense of intense suffering and torment through the use of dramatic lighting, bold brushwork, and the expressive poses of the figures. It is a thought-provoking work that invites the viewer to consider the nature of pain, suffering, and human experience.
