ABOUT THIS PIECE William Holbrook Beard's Power Of Death was created in 1889-90 and is in Harvard Art Museums. The size of the work is 53,7 x 44,1 cm and is made of oil on board. He specialized in animal paintings whose anthropomorphized subjects satirize human folly. Painted shortly before Beard’s death, this work is his most macabre. Death, an animated corpse wearing a shroud, grips a withered tree and strangles a tiger with his bare hand. The bodies of other exotic animals — a lion, a camel, and an elephant — are strewn around a dark and desiccated wilderness. A red sun gleams eerily on the horizon. Beard likely studied the animals in what began as a menagerie in New York’s Central Park, or in P. T. Barnum’s American Museum on lower Broadway. The Artist: William Holbrook Beard (1824 - 1900) was an American artistic painter who is known best for his satirical paintings of beasts performing human-like activities. He was a prolific artist.
