The Art History Babes

Four fresh Masters drink wine and discuss all things visual culture.

Halloween Throwback: Memento Mori

Another spooky favorite from the archives! There's nothing more frightening than thinking about the inevitability of death. The Babes examine reminders of death present in a wide range of art from Dutch vanitas symbolism, to the sugar skulls of Dia de los Muertos, to the formaldehyde-soaked works of Damien Hirst. Life is short, art is long my friends.
