This is the first in a three-part series of stories in ISSUE magazine that focus on notable artists who died in 1918 as a result of the Spanish flu pandemic. Sure, I admit that the flu is just a reason to do a couple of pieces about interesting artists (and three constitutes a seres, so there’s that).
Another driving force was the upcoming Egon Schiele show at Galerie St. Etienne in New York which I plan to review in the December ISSUE. He also died in 1918 of the flu.
