Florence – Museo della Misericordia (Tribute to the Misericordia by Cesare Riesch)

As I mentioned in other posts about this museum, the Misericordia were a group of individuals who performed charitable works anonymously. This painting is in tribute to them and their charity, although I think it’s quite a disconcerting artwork. It was painted by Cesare Riesch (1906-1982) and was given to the museum by his family after he died. A nice sentiment, but a very direct image.
