Frames and Context - using the visual to make costs of war accessible on the home front. Use of Various Frames changes perspective.
Mortally Wounded, 1873
Oil on Canvas, 73 x 56.5 cm.
The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow
War is war, whatever the century. War kills real people. Real people bleed. I was profoundly impressed by this painting when I saw it in the Guggenheim. It had a huge dark frame around it, even darker than the one I've put it in here. So imagine my surprise when my catalog arrived today and I saw the same painting without the frame.
Backup copy of Vereschagin's Mortally Wounded, without the frame, as it appears in the catalog.
Look at them side by side:

I've got to finish files for learning records, so I have no time to play. Why don't you try making the frame even darker and more humungous, as was the Guggenheim's in my memory.
Self Test on Costs of War Art project activity included.
