Artsology referenced as “further reading” on a book about Death and Dying

I was a bit surprised to find out today that Artsology’s feature on How Artists Portray Death in Art is referenced as a source for “further reading” in a book titled “The A–Z of Death and Dying: Social, Medical, and Cultural Aspects.” The book is edited by Michael John Brennan, who is an associate professor of sociology and the director of the Center for Death Education and Bioethics at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

The book literally covers a range of death-related topics from A to Z, and Artsology is referenced in the chapter about “Art and Literature,” in which Brennan mentions that “since the beginning of time, artists and writers in every era and culture have been occupied with the subject of death and dying.” In Artsology’s feature, we showcase and discuss works of art relating to death by artists such as Jacques-Louis David, Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, James Ensor, Gustav Klimt, Vincent Van Gogh, and Frida Kahlo.

It’s an interesting topic, and I appreciate the mention of Artsology by Professor Brennan.
