Suffering is the state of undergoing pain, distress, or hardship. In this gallery, you see different types of suffering throughout history displayed in an array of viewpoints. These different displays of suffering can very well be different states of suffering that the artist felt during a specific time. Some show physical suffering while others are self-suffering or financial. While two might be physical suffering, they are shown to fit the world around them. The gallery begins with historical religious figures and moves through history as styles of art move to the Western world. I also compare and contrast painting with the same themes to show this change through history. They each relate to the period of time surrounding the life of the artist.
